TRINKOT, Afghanistan, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- A suicide car bomb that rocked Deh Rawad district in Uruzgan province 370 km south of Kabul left three civilians dead and injured four others on Saturday, police said.

"A terrorist equipped with suicide vest and driving a car blew himself up next to a police van in a bazaar in Deh Rawad district at around 04:00 p.m. local time killing three civilians including two children on the spot, and injured four more civilians," provincial police spokesman Farid Ayel told Xinhua. There were no casualties on police, he contended.

The bomber was also killed in his blast, he added.

Ayel also blamed Taliban militants for organizing the attack. However, the outfit fighting the government is yet to comment.

Today's deadly suicide bombing took place hours after killing a Taliban commander Mullah Nasir and arresting another called Mullah Ghazi in the neighboring Charchino district of Uruzgan province.
