Taliban bomb kills 7 in Afghanistan

Seven people, including four soldiers were killed on Wednesday when a Taliban fighter detonated an explosive filled car by the police headquarters in Lashkar Gar, Afghanistan. 

Two women and a girl are also believed to have been amongst the dead. 

"A suicide bomber detonated an explosive-filled car in a car park near the main police headquarters in Lashkar Gah," a spokesperson for the governor of Helmand province told Al Jazeera. 

On Tuesday, the US president Donald Trump rejected the Taliban's call to pull US troops out of the country and instead vowed to continue fighting in order to avoid what he described as the "predictable and unacceptable" consequences of a US withdrawal.
