Official: Huge explosion hits southern Afghan city

An Afghan official says a large explosion has detonated in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar. There was no initial word if there were any dead or wounded.
Ahmad Wali Karzai, the brother of President Hamid Karzai, says it appears the explosion was near the offices of the city's intelligence service. Kandahar's provincial council offices are also near where Tuesday's explosion occurred.
An Associated Press reporter in Kandahar says a huge explosion rocked the city, followed by gunfire on the street afterward.
Taliban militants have carried out several complex attacks in Kandahar the last several year. Kandahar is the spiritual home of the Taliban.
