At least two private security guards were wounded and two fuel tankers set on fire in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday when insurgents attacked a supply convoy for NATO forces, an Afghan police official said. Provincial police spokesman Ghafor Khan said the two were injured in a battle near Jalalabad between the enemy combatants and private guards providing security for the convoy. He said other tankers were damaged along the highway, a main supply route between Pakistan and the Afghan capital of Kabul.
