KABUL (Reuters) - A US soldier and a Romanian were killed in a bomb attack in the Afghan capital Kabul on Thursday, the Taliban claimed.
"Two foreign soldiers were killed today in Kabul," Agence France-Presse quoted NATO's "firm support force" in Kabul as saying in a statement. "One is from Romania and the other is from the United States."
Ten people were killed and 42 wounded in a car bombing in Kabul.
Interior Ministry spokesman Nusrat Rahimi said the blast targeted a checkpoint on a main road in the Shash Darak area, which includes the US embassy, NATO mission and other diplomatic missions, which also destroyed at least 12 vehicles.
NATO announced the killing of a US soldier during an operation in Afghanistan on the 29 of last August.
