At least six people were injured in a car bomb explosion targeting a convoy of foreign troops in southern Afghanistan.

Police say the attack occurred Wednesday in Lashkar Gah, the capital of southern Helmand province.

A senior police officer (Kamaluddin Sherzad) says it was clear the troops were the target of the attack, although it was unclear if any were actually injured in the blast.

“The foreign troops' convoy was on the street when a car loaded with explosives detonated in front of them. It looked like the plan was very accurate.”
