Three NATO Troops Wounded In Afghan Attack


Authorities say three NATO troops have been wounded in a suicide car bombing targeting their convoy in eastern Afghanistan.

Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a spokesman for the governor of Nangarhar Province, said the attack happened late on July 12 in the province's Bhesoud district.

NATO says soldiers killed the attacker and there were no other fatalities.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

The violence comes during the Taliban's annual spring offensive.

They are trying to undermine the Western-backed government as foreign combat troops prepare to withdraw by the end of the year.
