LASHKAR GAH, Afghanistan - A suicide attacker killed 10 Afghan policemen and a child in the southern city of Lashkar Gah on Sunday when he detonated a car bomb, the provincial governor's spokesman said.

The attack in the heart of a city which was recently handed over to Afghan security forces was a reminder of the Taliban's reach, even at a time of stepped up pressure from US and Afghan troops.

The explosion happened near the police chief's compound in the provincial capital and appeared to target a joint Afghan police and army patrol.

Twelve people were wounded in the blast, nine of them policemen and three civilians, said Daoud Ahmadi, spokesman for the Helmand provincial governor.
