KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — Two explosions struck downtown Kandahar within a minute of each other Monday, killing two civilians in a key southern city where the US is planning an offensive to clear out the Taliban.

The explosions were caused by a car bomb and a motorbike packed with explosives, Kandahar's Deputy Provincial Police Chief Fazel Ahmad Sherzad said.

One of the blasts detonated near the deputy police chief's car, but he was not inside it at the time.
