On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon said two US soldiers were killed in the attack.

A suicide bomber on Wednesday attacked a convoy of international forces in Afghanistan's restive Kandahar province, the NATO-led coalition said in a statement. He said a suicide bomber driving a van attacked U.S. forces and claimed many had been killed and wounded, but the Taliban often greatly exaggerates causalities from its attacks.

A NATO official confirmed the attack and said there were casualties. The attack took place in the middle of evening prayers when the mosque was packed with about 300 worshippers.

Also on Thursday the Taliban ambushed and killed Jaghatu district gov. Manzur Hussain and a passenger in his car, Ghazni provincial police chief Mohammad Mustafa Mayar said.

After the blast, the Kandahar-Spin Boldak highway remained closed for a few hours and during that period, a number of helicopters were seen landing and flying back.

Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, announced the two deaths but withheld names of the victims.

Photos of the site showed one partially destroyed armored vehicle, with the rear of the truck particularly badly damaged. The assault is the latest blow to NATO forces, who ended their more than a decade-long combat mission in Afghanistan at the end of 2014.

However, Fox News reports two U.S. service members were killed. The volcano has been erupting sporadically ever since, killing 17 people and forcing more than 30,000 to evacuate their villages. "The attack did cause casualties". "If this policy did not bring any results in the past, don't expect any different results this time", said Jahangir Khattak, a New York-based journalist.

Security was heightened in Herat in advance of the rallies, in which protesters are demanding better protection.
