Roadside bomb damages German forces' vehicle in Afghanistan
A roadside bomb damaged military vehicle of German troops in Takhar province, northeast Afghanistan, an official with the German troops in the neighboring Kunduz province Nasir Alkozai said Wednesday, Xinhua reported.
"The incident occurred late Tuesday evening outside provincial capital Taliqan next to an airstrip, as a result a military armored personal carrier was damaged," Alkozai told Xinhua.
Quoting a German brigadier Shcrghinj with Germany's Provincial Reconstructing Team (PRT) in Kunduz province, Alkozai added that there were no casualties on the troops.
More than 3,500 German troops have been deployed in Afghanistan with majority of them in the relatively peaceful northern region serving under NATO command to help restore peace in the war-torn country.
