A car bomb exploded near a mosque in southern Afghanistan, killing a deputy provincial police chief and one of his bodyguards, while an intelligence agent and an aid worker were killed in other violence, officials said Friday. A second bodyguard was wounded in the car bombing, which occurred as Nafus Khan, the deputy police chief of Nimroz province, was parking his vehicle next to a mosque late Thursday in the regional capital, Zaranj, said Ghulam Dastaqir, the province's governor.
