Official: Roadside bomb kills 2 police in east Afghanistan

An Afghan official says a roadside bombing has killed two policemen and wounded two others in eastern Ghazni province.

Deputy provincial police chief Assadullah Shujayee says the explosion took place in the provincial capital of Ghazni on Thursday night.

He says a police car was on patrol duty when it struck the roadside bomb, which was likely detonated by remote control.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but Shujayee is blaming the Taliban.

Earlier this week, the Taliban launched a suicide attack targeting a court building in Ghazni, killing five civilians and a policeman.
