A policeman in Kandahar Province's Spin Boldak district, Mohammad Asif Khan, said the attack occurred on a main highway in the district, where the company was providing security for road construction projects.


Three security guards were killed, along with their driver.


Meanwhile, reports say a explosion rocked the center of the capital Kabul today.


It is not immediately clear what caused the blast, or whether there were casualties.
