Afghanistan: Suicide attacker hits military convoy

A suicide attacker detonated his explosives-filled car Wednesday near a military convoy in Kandahar, killing one and wounding nine, including two Canadian soldiers, Afghan and coalition officials said. The troops were on their way back from a patrol in a light-armored vehicle when they were hit by the attacker's car around 7:30 p.m. in Kandahar city, said coalition spokesman Maj. Quentin Innis. An Afghan bystander was also killed and seven others injured, said the governor's spokesman Dawood Ahmadi.
