The provincial attorney, his son and at least one other person were killed in the attack.

Violence has surged in Afghanistan this year, as Taliban militants have stepped up their insurgency with suicide and roadside bombings.

Friday, a top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said more troops are needed to tackle what he fears will be the worst winter of insurgent violence since 2002.

Major General Jeffrey Schloesser says militant groups plan to keep a significant number of fighters in eastern Afghanistan during the upcoming winter season. In previous winters, snow has limited the movement of insurgents.
