At least six policemen and a civilian have been killed and 13 wounded in a suicide attack on a governor's compound in western Afghanistan.

Four attackers were killed in the assault in Farah province - one blew himself up at the gate and the others fought their way inside the compound.

They were shot dead after a gun battle lasting nearly an hour.

The insurgents were armed with rocket propelled grenades, hand grenades and small arms.

Farah Deputy Governor Mohammad Yunos Rasuli said that the attackers wore police uniform and that he killed two of them before he was himself wounded by gunfire.
