In Afghanistan, at least three people have been killed and several wounded in a suicide attack targeting a convoy of NATO and Afghan troops in the southern city of Kandahar.

The Afghan army reports that the bomber detonated a car loaded with explosives near the military vehicles.

A local shopkeeper described a huge explosion as the convoy was passing.“There were women and children around but I don’t know what happened to them. With all the smoke and dust, I couldn’t see,” he said.

Local media reported that the Taliban had taken responsibility for the blast.
