Bombs kill Nato soldier and local government official in Afghanistan
Wednesday 11 April 2012
Roadside bombings today killed a local Afghan government official and a Nato service member, authorities said.
Sarhadi Zewak, a spokesman for Laghman province, said the head of Dawlat Shahi district, died today when his motorcycle hit a roadside bomb.
He was on his way to his office with a school headmaster, who was injured in the explosion, Zewak said.
Nato said the coalition service member was killed today in the south, but did not provide further details.
So far this year, 102 members of US-led coalition have been killed in Afghanistan.
Separately, the Helmand provincial governor's office said three local Afghan policemen were killed in Musa Qala district on Tuesday when a suicide bomber on a motorcycle blew himself up near their vehicle. The three were responding to an earlier attack that killed four policemen at the district police headquarters building.
