Suicide-bomb attacks, one at a police station, killed at least 22 people Friday
in southern Afghanistan, officials said.
The attack against police in the province of Urozgan killed at least 12 people and wounded five others, the BBC reported.
Most of the victims were believed to be police officers, including a chief identified as Obaed Ullah, who were having lunch when the attacker struck, the report said.
In the second attack, a bomber detonated his explosives in the southern province of Kandahar, near the border with Pakistan, killing 10 people, including an Afghan border police officer, officials said.
Security forces said the attacker entered Afghanistan from Pakistan.
