A roadside bomb destroyed a police vehicle patrolling in a dangerous area of southern Afghanistan on Monday, killing all seven policemen inside, an official said.
The police truck, a Ford Ranger, was traveling through the Zhari district of Kandahar province when the bomb exploded, said provincial police chief Fayed Agha Faqid.
Zhari was the site of one of NATO's largest-ever battles and remains a dangerous region. Military officials said they killed between 500 and 1,000 Taliban insurgents in Zhari last fall.
