The attacker, who was killed, had been attempting to hit a Canadian military convoy.
No coalition forces were reported hurt in the attack, which came a day after a U.S. and a Canadian soldier were killed in fighting in the southern province of Helmand. The U.S. military said 32 Taliban fighters were also killed.
