Afghan blast near Karzai during Helmand visit, no injured

Explosions were heard within several hundred metres of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, when he was visiting southern Helmand province, a Reuters witness said.

Karzai was addressing an indoor gathering of around 500 people when two explosions, which the witness identified as rockets, were heard nearby.

A villager from Bulan, several hundred metres away, told Reuters that two rockets had landed there but no one had been hurt or killed.
