Kandahar (Afghanistan), Sep 17: A suicide car-bomber attacked a NATO convoy in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar today, killing himself and a passer-by, a police officer said.

No NATO troops were hurt in the blast, the officer said. NATO spokesmen were not immediately available for comment.

The Taliban and their militant allies have unleashed a wave of attacks, including scores of suicide blasts, on government and foreign troops this year.

The level of violence has surprised the government and its Western allies and raised concern about the prospects for a country that had been seen as a success in the war on terrorism.
