Militants killed a district chief and three of his staff in an ambush in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, while in the south rebels killed a police commander and his brother, officials said.

Dawlat Shah district chief Qadeer Khan and three of his staff were killed by militants firing rockets and rifles at their car as Khan drove home, said Habib Rasool Memawal, Laghman province's deputy governor.

Separately, a suicide car bomber killed himself and wounded six Afghans in a botched attack on a U.S.-led coalition convoy in Kandahar city, the former Taliban stronghold in the country's south, police said, reports the AP.
