Blast at Afghan government office kills two
LASHKAR GAR, Afghanistan (Reuters) - A blast destroyed an Afghan government office in the southern province of Helmand on Monday killing at least two people, a witness said.
In a separate incident, U.S.-led forces said they had killed four suspected al Qaeda fighters during a raid in Khost province, once a stronghold of Osama bin Laden.
Police said the cause of Monday's blast opposite the police headquarters in Lashkar Gah, capital of Helmand province, was not clear.
Two bodies were taken away and bystanders said they thought more people were under the rubble of the building that included a justice department office.
