NATO soldier killed in Afghanistan; Taliban kill 8 in convoy attack

A roadside bomb killed a NATO soldier and wounded four others in southern Afghanistan, while a Taliban ambush left eight Afghan security personnel dead, officials said. The NATO soldiers were patrolling in the country's volatile south Sunday when an explosion ripped through their vehicle, NATO said in a statement. In central Wardak province, meanwhile, Taliban militants fired rocket-propelled grenades from their vehicles at a convoy led by private security guards on Saturday, killing six guards and two police officers, said Wardak police chief Gen. Zafaruddin, who goes by one name.
