The police chief of Afghanistan's volatile Helmand province survived a suicide attack on Monday when his convoy was bombed in the city of Lashkar Gah, officials said.
Nabi Ilham's armoured car was badly damaged by the early-morning explosion in the provincial capital, and three of his guards were wounded.
"At around 7:00 am (0230 GMT) the motorcade was passing through the city. A suicide car bomb targeted it," Omar Zwak, the provincial governor's spokesman, told AFP.
