Fifteen Killed in Southern Afghanistan Bombings, AP Reports

July 20 (Bloomberg) -- Bombings in southern Afghanistan late yesterday killed 15 people, including six members of the country’s security services, AP reported, citing an official.

The most deadly attack killed five members of the Afghan intelligence service and a policeman, when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb in the Sangin district of Helmand province, AP said, citing Omar Zwak, a spokesman for the region’s governor.

The deputy head of Sangin’s intelligence service was among those who died, the spokesman was reported as saying.

Insurgents have increased attacks in Helmand as foreign forces withdraw from the area, according to the report.
