Kandahar car bomb attack kills 35 civilians

A suicide car bomber targeting a Canadian military convoy detonated his explosives at a busy market in southern Afghanistan, killing 35 civilians, a police official said. At least 28 people were wounded in the attack in Spin Boldak, a town in Kandahar province near the border with Pakistan, said Abdul Razeq, the Spin Boldak border police chief. Two Canadian soldiers were wounded, he said. The attack comes one day after Afghanistan's deadliest bombing since the fall of the Taliban in 2001. More than 100 people were killed by a suicide bomber outside Kandahar city on Sunday.
