Six Italians wounded by roadside bomb in Kabul

Written by: Staff

ROME, May 5 (Reuters) Six Italian peacekeepers were wounded, two of them seriously, when a remote-controlled bomb exploded today in Kabul as their convoy was passing, a spokesman for the Italian forces said.

''There was an attack on a Italian patrol on the outskirts of Kabul. We think there was a remote-controlled bomb,'' the spokesman in Kabul told Reuters by telephone.

Italy has some 1,775 troops in Afghanistan as part of a NATO-led peacekeeping force.

Italy is still recovering from last week's killing of three soldiers in Iraq. They were killed by a roadside bomb which struck their convoy southwest of Nassiriya.
