Three Nato service members and translator killed in Afghanistan bombing


Three Nato service members and their translator have been killed in a bombing in eastern Afghanistan, officials said today.

Coalition spokesman Major Adam Wojack said the attack happened this morning but declined to provide further details, saying the alliance is still gathering information about the incident.

Afghan officials said there was a suicide bombing against a joint Afghan-international patrol in Khost province in the east early today in which three civilians were killed but did not provide details on military casualties.

It was not immediately clear if the Afghans were talking about the same incident.
