At least 8 killed by roadside bomb in Afghanistan
Sunday 25 March 2012
An Afghan official says a bomb exploded near a foot patrol of Afghan and Nato forces in the south of the country, killing eight Afghans and one international service member.
Arghandab district administrator Shah Mohammad says that the group was caught in the blast late yesterday. He says the dead include three police officers, four members of the Afghan local police and one translator.
Nato reported earlier this morning that one of its service members was killed in a bomb attack in southern Afghanistan on yesterday but did not provide further details. It was not clear if this referred to the same incident, as Nato usually waits for Afghan authorities to confirm the details of deaths.
