Rocket kills two at US base in Afghanistan

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

ROCK­ETS have crashed into a US base and a house in north­ern Afghanistan along the Pak­istan bor­der, killing two Nato soldiers and three civil­ians, of­fi­cials say. Four other soldiers were lightly wounded in the at­tack in Nari dis­trict of Ku­nar prov­ince. The area is a haven for hard­core in­sur­gent groups fight­ing along the poorly marked bor­der be­tween Pak­istan and Afghanistan. The heav­i­est fight­ing is con­cen­trated in the south and east of the coun­try, al­though in­sur­gents have opened new fronts in the north and west and con­tinue to con­duct sui­cide at­tacks in the cap­i­tal, Kabul.
