Two foreign troops hurt in Afghan suicide blast
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan, Apr 14 (Reuters) Two foreign soldiers were wounded in a suicide car-bomb blast in Afghanistan today, the latest in a string of attacks on foreign troops trying to bring peace to the country.
The attack happened near the entrance of a base used by foreign forces in Lashkar Gah, capital of the southern province of Helmand, a provincial official said.
''It was a suicide car attack and two foreign soldiers have been wounded,'' said senior provincial official Mahaiuddin, who uses one name.
The bomber was killed, he said. The identity of the two wounded soldiers was not clear. British and American troops are among foreign forces operating in the province.
A suicide car-bomb attack wounded three Americans in Lashkar Gah last week.
