A Nato soldier has been killed in a suicide bomb attack on a convoy in Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan, Nato has said.
The suicide bomber, who also died, rammed his explosives-laden vehicle into the convoy in Spin Boldak district near the Pakistan border.
The nationality of the soldier has not been revealed. Nato troops have sealed off the area.
Nato's 8,000 soldiers took over control from US forces in the south on 31 July.
The soldiers, under the umbrella of Nato's International Security Assistance Force (Isaf), are in six provinces in the south - Day Kundi, Helmand, Kandahar, Nimroz, Uruzgan and Zabul.
There has been a surge in violence this year, particularly in the south where Taleban fighters have stepped up attacks.
An Isaf statement said: "The incident occurred on the road from Spin Boldak to Kandahar when a white Toyota Corolla drove towards an Isaf convoy and exploded near one of the vehicles."
Isaf has lost 10 soldiers since taking over in the south.
