The Afghan government says a roadside bomb has killed four police officers in southern Afghanistan.

The interior ministry said in a statement on Monday the officers were on a convoy patrol with NATO forces when their vehicle struck a bomb laid in the road.

The blast took place on Sunday evening in Nad Ali district of Helmand province, a former Taliban stronghold where US Marines have poured in to try to establish peace and a functioning government.
