Explosion rocked southern Kandahar province on Tuesday, casualties feared.

Meantime, Kandahar police chief Khan Mohammad Mujahid said the blast was a roadside bomb attack, organized against him but he escaped unhurt.

"The blast was a roadside bomb, organized by Taliban to kill me but fortunately I escaped unhurt," Mujahid told Xinhua.

He also added that the attack happened on a street inside provincial capital Kandahar city when his vehicle was passed.
