KABUL, Afghanistan — An official in southern Afghanistan's largest city says a suicide bomber has struck near a NATO convoy in Kandahar.

Zalmai Ayubi, the spokesman for the Kandahar provincial governor, says there are casualties in Monday's blast near the Kandahar customs house. It wasn't immediately clear if anyone was killed.

In the capital, Kabul, NATO says the multinational force has a report of an explosion in Kandahar and is investigating.

Kandahar is located in the Taliban's traditional southern stronghold. A suicide car bomb struck outside the house of the police chief in the city Friday, wounding at least two people.
