Kabul, Sep 9: Officials say a roadside bomb has killed two Afghan soldiers and wounded a civilian near the capital, Kabul, as a suspected NATO drone strike has killed militants elsewhere in the country.

The roadside bombing happened today in Kabul province's Kalakan district. Local official Rahmat Khan Faqirzada said the blast, likely from a remote-controlled bomb, also wounded a civilian.
