A suicide bomber killed an Afghan district chief and three of his children in southern Afghanistan on Friday, and five civilians were killed in fighting between NATO soldiers and Taliban in the country's east, officials said. The bomber blew himself up as Khariudin Achakzai, the chief of Kandahar's Zhari district, was coming out of his house in the city of Kandahar with five of his children, said Abdul Ghafar, a police official.
