Officials say a twin bombing in southern Afghanistan has killed five people,three civilians whose car struck a roadside bomb and two police officers who had rushed to the scene to help the victims when the second bomb went off.

A provincial government spokesman,Ummar Zawaq,says the attack occurred this morning in Helmand province. Zawaq says the officers who died were members of the elite Afghan National Civil Order Police,the so-called ANCOPs who get special training from NATO forces.

The spokesman says a third officer was wounded in the blast. Afghan authorities say roadside bombs and booby-traps are their worst threat in fighting the Taliban.
