Roadside bomb hits foreign troops in Afghanistan

A roadside bomb hit foreign troops in Eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday, killing at least two Afghan civilians and wounding nine NATO soldiers, international force and Afghan officials said.

Master Sergeant Jeff Lotfin, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, said two Afghan civilians were killed and nine ISAF troops and four Afghan police were among those wounded by the bomb in Nangarhar Province.

Jamil Pardes, head of a hospital in the provincial capital Jalalabad, said 29 people had been treated for wounds and three civilians had been killed.

Provincial government spokesman Abdul Zia Abdulzai said two had died, both of them children.

Lotfin did not give the nationality of the wounded NATO troops. Most NATO forces in the area are Americans.
