Suicide attack on foreign military convoy in Afghanistan

IANS  |  Kabul 

Casualties were feared as a suicide car bomb targeted a foreign military convoy in Afghanistan's Kandahar province on Monday, officials said.

"A terrorist riding an explosives-laden car parked it alongside a road in Dand district and blew it up next to a military convoy of foreign forces today (Monday) afternoon," a government official told Xinhua news agency.

Qudratullah Khoshbakht, a spokesman for Kandahar provincial government, confirmed the attack but refused to comment on the possible casualties.

The NATO-led Resolute Support mission has yet to issue any statement on the incident.
