Attacks killed nine police officers Sunday in southern Afghanistan. Taliban men killed eight officers in an attack on a police checkpoint in Kandahar province, said Sadullah Khan, a police officer in the area. A suicide bomber killed another policeman and wounded eight other people when he blew himself up in a housing compound in the town of Lashkar Gah in neighboring Helmand province, officials said. Guards challenged the bomber when he tried to enter the house of a regional police commander and the man detonated his explosives, killing the policemen, said provincial police chief Mohammad Hussain Andiwal.
