Suicide bomber kills 2 NATO soldiers

A suicide bomber killed two NATO soldiers in an attack on an alliance convoy in Afghanistan's southern city of Kandahar today, a NATO spokesman said.

The spokesman, speaking in Kandahar, could not give the nationalities but Canadians form the bulk of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Kandahar.

''Two ISAF soldiers were killed by suicide attack this morning,'' the spokesman said.

Civilians in the areas said NATO forces sealed off the site of the attack, which happened on a road where several governmental buildings are located. They said the suicide bomber ploughed into the convoy in a car.

Flames and smoke rose from one of the vehicles and a NATO helicopter hovered overhead, the witnesses said.

The attack comes a day before a NATO summit in the Latvian capital Riga which is likely to be dominated by the tough mission in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan is going through its bloodiest period since U S-led coalition forces overthrew the Taliban's radical Islamic government in 2001.
