"A suicide bomber detonated his explosives-laden car at the main gate of the heavily guarded police headquarters in southern Afghanistan's Helmand province Sunday, killing 12 police officers and a child and wounding a dozen others. ... In other violence Sunday, NATO said five of its service members died in three separate incidents. A NATO statement said three troops died as a result of a non-battle related injury in western Afghanistan, another one was killed in a bomb blast in the east, and the fifth died in an insurgent attack in the south."
