KABUL, Afghanistan -- A Taliban suicide attack targeting a NATO convoy in Afghanistan has killed two people and wounded 26, including two U.S. soldiers.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi confirmed the number of casualties from Tuesday's attack in the capital, Kabul, updating an earlier toll.

A suicide bomber plowed an explosives-laden vehicle into the convoy, badly damaging two armored vehicles, sending a black plume of smoke into the sky and scattering glass and metal across the main highway leading to the airport.

A spokeswoman for NATO's Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan, U.S. Army Capt. Susan Harrington, said two American soldiers sustained minor injuries in the attack.
