      Five more die in two Kandahar explosions


      By Our Staff Correspondent

      QUETTA, Feb 1: At least five persons, including a commander of the
      Afghan Army, and two other personnel were killed and seven others
      injured in two more explosions in the outskirts of Kandahar on Friday
      evening.

      "Yes, two more explosions took place in Kandahar killing five
      persons," Fazal Din Agha Ulaswal, the administrative head of the
      border town of Spin Buldak, confirmed.

      The first blast occurred near the cantonment area, killing three
      persons on the spot. They were travelling in an army jeep towards
      their garrison during which the jeep hit a landmine.

      "The Jeep blew up, killing an Afghan army commander and his two
      aides," Mr Agha told Dawn by phone.

      According to Afghan sources, the second explosion occurred in Killi
      Mullah Alam through remote control bomb, claiming two lives of
      civilian.

      The bomb exploded during Afghan army's door-to-door search for the
      arrest of Taliban and Al Qaeda suspect, who were stated to be
      responsible for laying the landmine under a bridge between Kandahar
      and Takhta Pul. The landmine exploded when the passenger bus hit the
      mine at the bridge.

      "Remote control bomb planted to kill Afghan army personnel but it
      exploded before they reached the spot," Afghan sources said late on
      Friday night. Both the civilians were close to the place where the
      bomb exploded.

      A number of suspects has been taken into custody by the security
      authorities for questioning from both the sites of explosions.
