ISAF helicopter damaged in attack on US convoy in

A supply helicopter, contracted by NATO forces was damaged in the eastern Konar province while an ISAF soldier was killed in southern Zabul province, officials said on Friday.
A statement issued by the International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF), said the helicopter was damaged while making an emergency landing in eastern Konar Province, reported dpa.
The aircraft was forced to make the emergency landing at an ISAF base due to mechanical problems, the ISAF statement said, adding, "No one was injured during the emergency landing".
Another statement issued by NATO forces on Friday said one ISAF soldier was killed during a "direct fire engagement" with Taliban insurgents in the Qalat district of southern Zabul province on Friday.
The statement did not give the nationality of the soldier.
Meanwhile, a suicide bomber targeted a military forces convoy in eastern Nangarhar province, provincial police said.
The suicide car bomb in the eastern province of Nangarhar killed only the bomber, said Abdul Ghafoor, a spokesman for Nangarhar police.
The attack occurred in the Bareekab area on the Jalalabad-Torkham highway, the spokesman said without giving details of casualties among foreign troops or their nationalities. Most foreign soldiers stationed in the province are US.
It was the second suicide attack on foreign troops in Nangarhar this month. The first killed two Americans and wounded five civilians.
Meanwhile, a military statement on Friday said approximately 17 militants were killed when they attacked a joint Afghan and Coalition force reconnaissance patrol in the Tarin Kowt District, in Uruzgan province on Thursday.
The combined patrol confirmed the positive identification of the militant's position and requested support from coalition aircraft, the statement said, adding, "Coalition forces directed one precision air-strike followed by air-to-ground gunfire on the positively identified enemy positions".
"The airstrike triggered a secondary explosion in a compound and the remnants of bomb-making materials were recovered from the site," it said.
In another development, a Romanian soldier was killed Friday and three soldiers were injured while on patrol in Afghanistan.
The soldiers were travelling in four amphibious vehicles on the road between Kabul and Qualat when they were attacked by insurgents using light weapons and mortar shells, 50 kilometres from Qualat.
A military statement issued from the US airbase at Bagram outside Kabul said coalition forces had searched several compounds Thursday in the Zurmat district while targeting two militant leaders suspected of facilitating foreign fighter attacks on Afghan and coalition forces.
The coalition forces were engaged by armed militants from one of the compounds, the statement said. The force responded with small- arms fire and airstrikes, killing several militants and a woman who was with the attacking militants in the building.
"One militant detonated a suicide-vest explosion in the compound, killing only himself," the statement said.
In another development, Afghan border security forces arrested two militants in a vehicle packed with explosives, also in Paktia.
A statement issued by the Afghan Interior Ministry said remote- controlled bombs and other explosives material were recovered from the detained militants.
