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-armoured vehicle when they were hit by the attacker's car around 7:30 pm in Kandahar, said coalition spokesman Maj Quentin Innis.

The attacker was killed and two Canadian soldiers were injured, he said.

An Afghan bystander was also killed and seven others injured, said governor's spokesman Dawood Ahmadi.

The wounded included one policeman and six civilians, who were taken to Mir Wais Hospital, said Dr Aziz Khan.
