ASAD ABAD - A double suicide attack killed three Nato soldiers in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday, Afghan and Western officials said.
The nationalities of the soldiers were not disclosed, but American troops provide the bulk of the Nato mission in Kunar, a flashpoint for Taliban.
Local police chief, Mohammad Aywaz Naziri, told AFP that two insurgents wearing suicide vests blew themselves up as a group of foreign troops walked to the nearby governor’s compound.
“This morning two suicide bombers targeted US soilders... who were walking from their base to the governor’s compound,” Naziri said. One Afghan was also killed in the blast, he added. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but similar attacks in the past been claimed by the Taliban.
