Associated Press | June 14, 2005
KABUL, Afghanistan Four American troops and their interpreter are wounded after a roadside bomb blast in central Afghanistan today.
U-S military officials say the attack happened as an American military vehicle passed by on a routine patrol south of Kabul. None of the injuries is believed to be life threatening. The victims were airlifted to a hospital.
A U-S military spokesman says militants can't stand up to the U-S and their allied troops so they must "resort to these tactics."
Another attack yesterday also wounded four U-S troops near Kandahar. Officials say three bombs were also discovered and destroyed in other locations yesterday.
Afghan and coalition forces also killed two suspected militants and captured 13 others in a firefight yesterday after a group of rebels was spotted walking through a narrow valley just north of Kandahar.
