A Romanian soldier was killed in Afghanistan and three colleagues were wounded Sunday when their patrol vehicle was blown up, the Romanian news agency Mediafax quoted the Bucharest defence ministry as saying, the dpa reported.

Their vehicle, one of four in a convoy, hit an improvised mine on the Kabul-Kalat highway. The death was the sixth among the contingent of almost 650 Romanians in the international force in Afghanistan.
