A car bomb exploded next to an Afghan government office during a provincial council meeting Wednesday, killing at least three people and wounding 28, officials said.
The attack in the southern city of Kandahar ripped through the council office, flattened two nearby homes and damaged the nearby offices of the country's intelligence service, an Associated Press reporter at the scene said.
Dr. Amayun Shafi at Kandahar's main hospital said the attack killed at least three people and wounded 28.
A police official, Ezatullah Khan, said the explosion was caused by a car bomb, but no suicide attacker was involved.
