A car bomb exploded near a coalition forces convoy in a volatile area of southern Afghanistan, wounding five soldiers, a spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force said Saturday. Squadron Leader David Marsh said the Taliban rebels also opened fire on their convoy in the Oruzgan province shortly after Friday's bomb attack. He did not give the names or nationalities of the wounded soldiers, and only said they were being treated at a NATO-run hospital in Kandahar.
