20 killed, 50 injured in Afghanistan car bomb

At least 20 people have been killed and over 50 others wounded after a powerful blast hit a bank in Lashkar Gah, the capital of the southern Afghan province of Helmand.

The Thursday blast targeted the New Kabul Bank branch, where members of Afghan security forces had gathered to collect their pay.

Omar Zwak, spokesman for the provincial governor, said the fatalities include members of the police and army, civilians and staff of the bank.

No group has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
