LASHKAR GAH - Seven Afghan policemen were killed in an attack on a checkpoint in the southern city of Lashkar Gah on Monday, a government spokesman said, two days before NATO-led troops hand over security control to Afghan forces.

In western Afghanistan, two people were beheaded a week after they and 33 others were kidnapped, apparently for supporting the government, and in the south a police chief and three policemen were killed by a bomb.

Daoud Ahmadi, a spokesman for the governor of southern Helmand province, confirmed the Lashkar Gah attack and said seven police were killed.
