Bomber hits convoy in Afghanistan

Deaths as suicide bomber strikes vehicles supplying Nato bases in Helmand.

    The blast had set four lorries near the blast on fire.

    Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher in Kabul said it was difficult to obtain accurate casualty figures due to the intense heat generated from the explosion and subsequent fires.

    He also said that Taliban fighters are suspected of carrying out the attack, but the Taliban has not claimed responsibility.
