KANDAHAR - Eighteen people were killed and 35 were wounded on Thursday during an insurgent attack on government buildings in Afghanistan's volatile southern Uruzgan province, a senior health official said.

"Up to now 18 people have been killed and 35 have been wounded, including military personnel and civilians. Unfortunately, one journalist is among the dead," said Khan Agha Nehakhil, head of Uruzgan's health department.

Up to six suicide bombers armed with guns attacked the governor's compound and the police chief's compound in Tirin Kot, capital of Uruzgan. Officials said at least three bombers had detonated their explosives and police security forces were locked in a gunfight with the remaining attackers.
