2012-05-21
[Tolo News] A jacket wallah detonated his explosives near a convoy of Isaf troops in southern Uruzgan on Sunday, wounding six civilians, local officials said.

The incident began around 10:30 am when a convoy of NATO
...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. A collection of multinational and multilingual and multicultural armed forces, all of differing capabilities, working toward a common goal by pulling in different directions...
troops were passing through Trinkoot, the capital of Uruzgan, provincial police chief front man Fareed Ayal told TOLOnews.

The suicide bomber was walking on foot, he added.

He said that the foreign troops also have some casualties, but he could not provide any exact information.

One official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said two Isaf soldiers were killed in the attack.

An Isaf statement confirmed that two coalition troops were killed in an "Islamic fascisti attack in southern Afghanistan on Sunday". Neither the soldiers' nationalities nor the exact location were given in the statement released.

More security forces have arrived in the area and blocked the road, Aval said.
