Bomber Kills 10 Afghan Policemen And Child

KABUL, Afghanistan, July 31 (UPI) — A suicide bomber killed 10 Afghan policemen and a child Sunday in the capital of Helmand province, security officials said.

Seven police officers and two civilians were also injured by the blast at a police compound in the city of Lashkar Gah, a spokesman for the southern province told The Washington Post.

Spokesman Daoud Ahmadi told The Los Angeles Times the blast was strong enough to collapse an entire wall of the police compound.

Taliban militants claimed responsibility for the attack, the reports said.

The city is one of seven regions NATO forces turned over to Afghan security forces earlier this month as the United States and other countries begin drawing down their military presence, the Times said.

There has been a spike in the number of terror attacks on government and security officials in the regions where NATO troops withdrew, the Post said.

Almost all foreign troops are scheduled to leave Afghanistan by 2014, 13 years after the military push began to roust the Taliban from power.
