Taliban ambush Afghan governor's convoy, 2 wounded

Taliban militants attacked the convoy of an Afghan governor Tuesday, wounding two of the official's guards, the governor's spokesman said. Britain's defense ministry on Tuesday, meanwhile, said a British soldier died from wounds suffered in a suicide attack in the eastern outskirts of Kabul on Monday. The Taliban militants attacked the 10-vehicle convoy carrying the governor of the central province of Ghazni, said spokesman Sayed Ismail Jahangir. The attack took place in Wardak province, about 70 kilometers (40 miles) southwest of the Afghan capital, Kabul. Two security guards were wounded in the attack, Jahangir said. The governor was not hurt and the convoy continued on its way to Kabul.
