Roadside bomb wounds 4 German soldiers in northern Afghan province
Four German soldiers were injured as a roadside bomb struck their vehicle in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province on Monday, spokesman with the NATO-led forces in the province Lieutenant Colonel Webber said. "The incident occurred in Ali Abad district at 05:30 a.m. local time as a result three or four German soldiers were injured," Webber told Xinhua.
Meantime, governor of Kunduz province Mohammad Omar also said that the blast took place in Lala Maidan village of Ali Abad district this morning injuring four German soldiers.
On the other hand, a Taliban purported spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid in talks with media via telephone from undisclosed location claimed that Taliban is responsible for the bomb attack, adding that the four German soldiers were killed in the blast.
However, provincial governor Omar rejected the claim as baseless, saying no soldiers were killed in the blast.
A relatively peaceful province Kunduz has been the scene of increasing insurgency since early this year.
