Two Afghan policemen, including the police chief of Rigistan district in Kandahar province, 450 km south of the capital city of Kabul, were killed as a roadside bomb struck their vehicle on Monday, deputy to provincial police chief Shir Shah Yusufzai said.

"The gruesome incident happened at around 09:00 a.m. local time, as a result Wali Mohammad, the police chief of Rigistan district, along with another police, was killed," Yusufzai told Xinhua.

He blamed the attack on the enemies of peace, a term used against Taliban militants by government officials.
