A suicide bomb attack on a police headquarters in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar has killed at least five policemen.

A spokesman for the provincial governor said that the attacker drove his explosives-laden car into a checkpoint at the headquarters.

In February at least five policemen were shot dead at a checkpoint in the city of Kandahar.

Kandahar is known to be a centre of Taliban activity, and is one of the areas where the insurgency originated.
