6 injured in suicide bombing

A suicide car bomb targeting a police headquarters injured three officers and three civilians in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, authorities said.

The attack took place in the Andar district of Ghazni province.

Ghazni Police Chief Khial Baz Sherzai said the suicide attacker was speedily driving a vehicle similar to the kind used by Afghan National Police.

Police singled for the driver to stop and then shot and detonated the vehicle.

In Kandahar province, Afghan and NATO-led forces captured a militant responsible for coordinating attacks, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said Thursday.

The militant, a Taliban "sub-commander," was seized Wednesday night, and several suspected insurgents were detained, ISAF said. Kandahar is in southern Afghanistan.
