Blast aimed at NATO kills Afghan, wounds German
MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan, Feb 22 (Reuters) An explosion aimed at NATO peacekeepers killed an Afghan civilian and wounded 13 people today, including a German peacekeeper, in northern Afghanistan, police said.
The blast, caused by a remotely controlled device attached to a bicycle, went off as a group of peacekeepers were shopping in the northern town of Kunduz, police chief Mutalib Beg said.
''It killed the shopkeeper and wounded 13 people, all of whom were civilians except a German soldier from ISAF,'' he told Reuters, referring to the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force.
An ISAF official in Kabul confirmed that the attack was aimed at its troops but said he had no more details.
