Afghan official: Suicide bomber kills 3

An Afghan official says a suicide bomber has killed three people in an attack against an administrative building in restive eastern Paktia province.
District chief Allah Gul Ahmadzai says the bombing occurred late Wednesday afternoon in the Sayed Karam district of Paktia, which borders with Pakistan. He says the bomber was wearing an explosives vest and blew himself up just 2 yards (meters) from the front gate of the district headquarters. The bomb killed three civilians, including a 13-year-old boy, and blew out windows in the compound. There was no other damage.
