Kabul: An attempt to target a police post in the Panjwai district of southern Kandahar province through a car bomb was foiled, an official said on Wednesday.

Kandahar police spokesperson Jamal Nasir Barakzai said that insurgents attacked the police post in the Salawat area of the district on Tuesday night.

He added that the militants simultaneously planned to detonate an explosives-laden vehicle at the security post, but police fired at it and destroyed the car bomb.
