Georgian soldier killed in latest Afghan attack
KABUL - 5 August 2017: A Taliban suicide bomber disguised as a woman rammed his motorcycle into an international convoy, killing a NATO soldier and two Afghan civilians in an attack north of the Afghan capital, ABC News quoted the US military as saying Friday.
It was the second deadly assault this week on a NATO convoy.
Stepped up Taliban attacks this week have focused mostly on the country's south, but there was also a deadly bombing in the western city of Herat, where 32 people died in a militant assault on a Shiite mosque.
Thursday evening's attack hit the NATO patrol near the town of Qarabagh, barely 30 kilometers north of Kabul, the Afghan capital, the US military said.
The day before, a suicide attacker hit a convoy on the edge of the southern city of Kandahar, killing two US soldiers and wounding another four. Both attacks were claimed by the Taliban.
