Three Die Planting Bomb in Afghanistan

Three suspected terrorists were killed in Afghanistan over the weekend when a bomb they were trying to plant under a bridge in the east of the country exploded by mistake, a military commander said Tuesday. The remote-controlled bomb exploded Sunday at al-Tamur, on the main road from Kabul to the eastern town of Gardez, said Gen. Atiqullah Uddin, a military commander speaking by satellite phone from Gardez. Two of the men planting the device died in the blast, while a third man succumbed to severe wounds after being treated at a local hospital. The bridge was damaged, but cars were still able to move around it, Uddin said. The three men comprised one of 17 suspected terrorist teams local authorities are hunting down in several provinces in southeastern Afghanistan, Uddin said, adding that each group was being paid $50,000 to carry out such operations. It was not known who was paying them. Full Story
