KANDAHAR, Afghanistan  — A bomb blast struck the police headquarters in Kandahar, Afghanistan on Saturday, killing one civilian and wounding four others, an official said.

The attack occurred in Kandahar city, the scene of several recent deadly bombings targeting police.

Zelmai Ayubi, spokesman for the governor of Kandahar province, said one Afghan civilian was killed and four wounded by the blast.

The embattled south is the scene of Operation Dragon Strike, launched last month by NATO and Afghan forces in areas around Kandahar to flush out entrenched Taliban fighters and destroy their strongholds.
