A wave of attacks on government targets in the Afghan city of Kandahar on Saturday were "revenge" by extremists for the killing of Osama bin Laden, a statement from President Hamid Karzai's office said.

"Al Qaeda and its terrorist members who have suffered a major defeat with the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistani territory have tried to hide this defeat by killing civilians in Kandahar and take their revenge on the innocent people of Afghanistan," the statement said.
