An explosion struck a depot for fuel tanker trucks near southern Afghanistan's Kandahar air field on Tuesday, wounding 10 guards, an Afghan army general said.

Sher Mohammad Zazai, commander of Afghan forces in the south of the country, said Taliban fighters appeared to have infiltrated the fuel depot and triggered the blast. The city has seen a worsening of security ahead of a planned NATO offensive there.
