A roadside bomb hit a U.N. vehicle in southern Afghanistan Tuesday, killing four Nepalese security guards and an Afghan driver, a police official said.

The victims were traveling through Kandahar city in a gray vehicle with blue U.N. license plates when the explosion hit, said Ahmad Jan Agha, a police officer at the scene.

Four Nepalese men working as U.N. security guards and their Afghan driver were killed in the blast, said Esmatullah Alizai, Kandahar’s provincial police chief.

A U.N. spokesman in the capital, Kabul, confirmed there had been an incident involving a U.N. convoy in Kandahar, but provided no details.
