Policemen killed in Afghan blasts
Posted on: 16-03-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

Police said a bomber wearing police uniform blew himself up near the main police building in Lashkar Gah, the capital of southern Helmand province.

Policemen were exercising in the yard at the time of the blast. The attack left six police dead.

Another policeman was killed in an attack in the south-western province of Farah, officials said.

Southern Afghanistan has been the centre of a Taleban-led insurgency since the US-led invasion in 2001.

This winter has proved the bloodiest for international troops since the military operations began, says the BBC's Martin Patience in Kabul.

More than 60 service personnel have been killed since the start of the year - the majority of casualties caused by improvised explosive devices.

In response to the worsening security situation, the US is set to send thousands of additional forces.

Most of these troops will be deployed in the south and east of the country, where the Taleban-led insurgency is at its strongest, says our correspondent.
