An Afghan official says a suicide car bombing that targeted a NATO convoy has killed two civilians in eastern Logar province.

Shah Poor Ahmadzai, spokesman for the province's police chief, said the bomb attack in the provincial capital Monday evening killed a woman and a child and wounded three other women.

Ahmadzai said the NATO armored tanks were damaged in the blast.

Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack in a phone interview with AP and said five U.S. soldiers were killed.

The police spokesman, however, said there were no casualties in the NATO convoy.
