    At least 11 policemen have reportedly been killed in four suicide bomb attacks in eastern Afghanistan, sources say.

    The bombings took place at a police headquarters in Logar Province south of the capital Kabul.

    The attacks are the latest in a series of killings targeting Afghan security forces after the pullout of the bulk of foreign combat troops from Afghanistan in late 2014.
