Explosion Rocks Southern Afghan City, One Dead-OfficialsLast update: 10/16/2010 12:45:12 PM     Last update: 10/16/2010 12:45:12 PMKABUL (AFP)--An explosion Saturday in a volatile city in southern Afghanistan at the heart of the insurgency killed one civilian and injured four others, officials said. Explosives attached to a motorcycle were detonated by remote control in the center of Kandahar, a spokesman for the local governor said. An AFP reporter in Kandahar said the explosion took place shortly before 1530 GMT. Abdul Raheem, a doctor at Kandahar hospital said: "So far we have received one civilian dead and four civilians injured at our hospital." Kandahar, capital of the province of the same name, is at the center of the war waged by the Taliban since its own brutal regime was toppled in a U.S.-led invasion in October 2001. It was the capital of the Taliban administration and remains the heartland of the Islamist movement which is fighting the government of President Hamid Karzai.
