"A roadside bomb has killed an anti-Taliban district governor and two of his bodyguards in southern Afghanistan's volatile Helmand province. The governor of Khan Neshin district, Massoud Khan, was a fierce opponent of drug smugglers and the Taliban, who issued him with death threats, provincial spokesman Daud Ahmadi told AFP on Wednesday."
