KABUL — Insurgents killed the vice mayor of the southern city of Kandahar Tuesday as he prayed at a mosque, the latest brazen attack on government officials in the volatile region where troops are preparing for an assault on Taliban forces.

Meanwhile, NATO said one of its convoys in Khost province, on the Afghan border with Pakistan, fired on a vehicle that ignored warnings to stop late Monday night, killing four unarmed people inside the car.

It said two of those killed in the incident were later identified as "known insurgents," although the provincial chief of police, Abdul Hakim Hesaq Zoy, said the dead were all civilians, and included a 12-year-old child.
