Suicide bomber targets NATO convoy in eastern Afghanistan, 4 troops wounded A suicide bomber plowed his car into a NATO convoy in eastern Afghanistan, wounding four soldiers, an Afghan official said Saturday. The bomber struck the convoy, which also included Afghan security forces, in Bermel district in Paktika province on Friday, said Mohammad Akram Akhpelwak, the province's governor. A NATO spokesman confirmed the blast and said some soldiers were wounded but he did not disclose the number. Most of the troops in that region are American. The Bermel region borders Pakistan, and a US base there sees frequent rocket attacks. Afghan and Western officials say that militants cross the border to launch attacks against Afghan and foreign troops in the country.
