Police Killed In Afghan Bomb

Officials in Afghanistan say at least 10 people -- including eight police officers -- were killed when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb.

At least two men who had been detained by the police were also killed in the explosion late January 26 in the southern city of Kandahar.

Officials said the blast hit the vehicle after three men were detained by the police on suspicion of planting a separate bomb in Kandahar.

Officials said Taliban militants are suspected of setting the roadside bomb.

Earlier January 26, 10 Afghan police were killed by a suicide bomber in an attack in the northern city of Kunduz.
