A car bomb exploded near a coalition forces convoy in a volatile area of southern Afghanistan, wounding five soldiers, a spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force said Saturday.

He did not give the names or nationalities of the wounded soldiers, and only said they were being treated at a NATO-run hospital in Kandahar.
