— Provincial officials said a suicide car bomber killed three civilians and wounded another six in Afghanistan’s southern Uruzgan province.

Abdullah Himmat, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said Saturday’s blast occurred near the police headquarters of Uruzgan’s Dehra Wood district.

Fareed Ayal, a spokesman for the provincial police, said the car apparently detonated prematurely before it reached the gate of the headquarters.

Insurgents and Taliban fighters often use suicide bombers to target government buildings, convoys and foreign troops.
