Two killed in suicide attack against NATO troops in S Afghanistan

"A man riding a motorbike blew up himself next to a joint patrol of Afghan and international soldiers this morning as a result two persons including one soldier and one passerby were killed," Rahman told journalists at the site of the blast.

He said that seven more persons including three foreign soldiers and four civilians were injured.

All the killed and injured soldiers are Americans, Rahman said.

Meantime, the NATO-led troops have yet to make comment.
