(Herald Sun) — Afghan suicide bombers killed two children and wounded six others, when their explosive vests detonated prematurely.
The three bombers were on a motorcycle when their explosives went off in southern Kandahar city, killing and wounding children playing nearby, provincial spokesman Jawed Faisal said.
Shortly afterwards a group of armed insurgents launched an attack on police headquarters in the volatile capital, the spiritual birthplace of the hardline Islamist Taliban.
“Probably the three bombers who blew up and killed children were going to join the attack,” Mr Faisal said.
The children were aged between eight and twelve and were playing at the time of the explosion, he said.
