Two Afghan officials were killed and four of their bodyguards got wounded as a roadside bomb struck their vehicle Monday evening in Taliban's former stronghold Kandahar south of Afghanistan, police said Tuesday.

"A bomb planted by militants struck the vehicle of Amir Mohammad, the district chief of Registan, killing him and Assadullah the police chief of the district on the spot," Matiullah Khan the police chief of Kandahar province told Xinhua.

Four of their bodyguards were injured in the incident, he added.

Taliban insurgents and their al-Qaida allies as change of tactic have resorted to roadside bombing and suicide attacks against interests of government and international troops.

A similar roadside bombing by Taliban militants claimed the life of Abdullah Wardak of Logar province near the Afghan capital city Kabul days ago.

Conflicts and spiraling insurgency have claimed the lives of over 4,000 people with around 1,445 civilians so far this year in the war-torn country.
