According to the Canadian Press, the two soldiers were in a Bison, an eight-wheeled armoured vehicle, when the bomber drove his car, loaded with explosives, into the convoy and detonated the bomb.

deltaboy, that may have been the case, if so, perhaps they should consider somehow closing the opposite lane until the large convoy passes by?

Have someone close overthere as part of the NATO commitment. Seems to me there should be a lot more command and soldiers there than is at the moment.

I have to debate the OP here. I read the papers daily and there hasn't been a lapse in their reporting. They are telling us all that is available. Khandahar is a volitile area where pretty much only the Canadian troops have rein to fire on enemy combatants. There ARE other troops there from NATO but they are not allowed to engage. I'll look for the story, it was in the Toronto Star.
