A suicide car bomb exploded near a UN convoy in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday, killing the attacker but hurting no one else, officials said. The attack occurred in Kandahar city, a former Taliban stronghold, as the convoy was traveling to a nearby US-led coalition base, said provincial government spokesman Dawood Ahmadi. An Associated Press reporter saw what appeared to be parts of the body of the attacker on the road next to a severely damaged and burned UN four-wheel-drive vehicle. Bits of the attacker's car were scattered around the area. UN spokesman Adrian Edwards said: "We are still verifying what has happened, but at this stage we do not have any reports of casualties."
