Afghan attack kills two NATO soldiers, two children

KABUL, Afghanistan — Two NATO soldiers were killed in an attack in Afghanistan Sunday, ISAF said, while police said at least two children were also killed as a suicide bomber targeted a NATO convoy.

"Two International Security Assistance Force service members died following an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan today," NATO's ISAF said in a statement, without giving further details.

"In a suicide attack against an ISAF convoy in Tirin Kot this morning two children were killed and several other civilians were wounded. There have been some casualties to ISAF troops too," said General Matiullah Khan.
