Six people were killed in a blast in the southern Helmand province, which has seen heavy fighting between Taliban insurgents and security forces in recent weeks, according to Omer Zwak, the spokesman for the provincial governor. He said five others -- three women and two children -- were wounded in the attack, and that all the victims were from the same family.
