Officials have reported a suspected bomb attack which took place at an election in southern Afghanistan in the early hours of Tuesday has claimed at least 10 person life and leaves 8 persons wounded.

The attack happened in Lashkar Gah, the capital of Helmand, a southern province bordering Pakistan.

The Taliban has carried out attacks in strategic provinces ahead of the parliamentary polls set for Oct.20, and on Monday directed Afghans to boycott voting, while demanding a complete withdrawal of foreign forces as the only way to end the 17-year-old war.
