KABUL, Afghanistan — A police chief says a suicide bomber has killed five people, and wounded seven others in eastern Afghanistan.

Khost province’s police chief, Abdul Qayum Bakizoy, says the bomber targeted a militia commander working for the U.S. forces in the province.

Bakizoy says the commander was wounded in the Friday blast. Five people, including two intelligence agents, were killed.

Militants launch suicide attacks against Afghan and foreign troops. More than 4,600 people — mostly militants — have died in insurgency related violence this year.
