KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – Officials say a roadside bomb destroyed a police vehicle, killing at least two officers and wounding three in central Afghanistan.

Deputy provincial police chief Mohammed Zaman says the remote-controlled bomb went off in Waghaz district of Ghazni province early Saturday. He says two officers died and three were wounded.

But an Associated Press Television News cameraman saw three corpses at the scene.

Taliban militants have stepped up attacks against Afghan police, who are less trained and worse equipped than the national army.
