Afghan army: 4 civilians, one NATO service member die in suicide car bomb

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) - An Afghan official says four civilians have been killed by a suicide car bomb aimed at NATO forces outside the major southern city of Kandahar.

An Afghan army official at the bombing site says the attacker waited in a taxi near a bridge between the airport and city that NATO troops regularly check for explosives. He detonated the bomb as a NATO convoy crossed the bridge, tossing a military vehicle into the ravine below. One NATO service member was also killed.
