A roadside bomb killed five police and wounded two others on Sunday in eastern Afghanistan, while a clash and a suicide bombing in the west killed eight police and at least five suspected militants, officials said. The latest violence comes amid an escalation in attacks and military operations after a winter lull. The remote-controlled mine in Ghazni province exploded as a police convoy was passing, killing five officers and wounding two others in Chola district, Deputy Governor Qazim Allayar said.
