Insurgents have stepped up attacks around Afghanistan this year, including a record number of suicide bombings in the country.
NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) today issued a statement calling on all Afghans to stay away from NATO convoys.
Insurgents regularly attack NATO convoys in Afghanistan, and NATO soldiers have mistakenly fired on civilians, believing they were attackers.
