KABUL, Afghanistan  — Officials and witnesses said a car bomb has exploded outside a house owned by the police chief in the southern province of Kandahar. It's the second attack on him this week.

Interior ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary said two women were wounded in Friday's blast.



Dr. Irsan Khan of Mirwais Hospital in Kandahar said four people were wounded. Conflicting numbers of casualties are common in the immediate aftermath of explosions.

The police chief Khan Mohammad Mujahid was inside the house but wasn't hurt by the blast.

On Tuesday, a bomb exploded near Mujahid's convoy. No one was hurt in that attack.
