Suicide Car Bomber Kills At Least 8 Civilians in Southern Afghanistan


Officials in Afghanistan say a suicide car bomb attack in the southern city of Kandahar has killed at least eight civilians and wounded at least 25 other people.

Police say the car bomber targeted a NATO convoy passing through Kandahar. Three coalition soldiers and two Afghan policemen were among the wounded in Thursday's blast.

A NATO spokesman declined to give the nationalities of the soldiers.

Afghan, NATO and U.S. troops are fighting a resurgent Taliban and other rebels who have strongholds in the southern and eastern parts of the country.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
