2 NATO Soldiers Wounded in Afghan Bomb Blast

Officials in Afghanistan say two NATO soldiers have been wounded in a bomb attack in the north of the country.

The roadside blast hit a convoy of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force Thursday in Baghlan province, 160 kilometers north of Kabul. Local officials say two Dutch soldiers were wounded.

Taleban fighters have been involved in clashes with U.S. and Afghan government troops in the south and east of the country. Officials say some anti-government militants operate in the north, but attacks there are rare.
