A car bomb exploded near a mosque, killing a deputy provincial police chief and one of his bodyguards in southern Afghanistan, officials said Friday.
A second bodyguard was wounded in the blast as Nafus Khan, the deputy police chief of Nimroz province, was parking his car next to a mosque late Thursday, said Ghulam Dastaqir, the province's governor.
He blamed the attack on Taliban rebels, reports the AP.
