KANDAHAR, Afghanistan, Fri Jun 20,( - A suicide attack aimed at a NATO convoy killed 10 Afghan civilians on Friday in the southern province of Helmand on Friday, the provincial police chief said.

"The civilians were killed in Girishk district when a suicide bomber attacked a foreign forces convoy," Hussein Andiwal said.

Andiwal did not know whether there were any casualties among the soldiers in the convoy.

He said the bomber was on foot and six other Afghan civilians were wounded in the attack.

Late on Thursday, two soldiers from US-led forces in Afghanistan were killed in a clash in Helmand, a bastion for Taliban insurgents and the major drug-producing region of Afghanistan.
