Afghan officials say a suicide bomber blew himself up outside the offices of the central Parwan province's governor Tuesday, killing two people and wounding two others.

Officials said the governor escaped unharmed.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing.

In other violence Tuesday, NATO said one of its soldiers was killed following a bomb blast in the south.

The Taliban has stepped up its attacks on government officials and Afghan and international troops in recent months.
