German soldier wounded in Kunduz attack

KUNDUZ CITY (PAN): Two German soldiers with the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were wounded in a militant attack in northern Kunduz province, the defence ministry in Berlin announced on Thursday.

A statement from the ministry said the troops wounded in Wednesday attack were under treatment at an ISAF medical facility. Their injuries were not life-threatening, it added.

But a source in the German-led Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) told Pajhwok Afghan News that only one soldier was injured in the assault in the insurgent assault in Chahar Dara district.

Col. Ghulam Mohiuddin, the district police chief, said the Taliban attacked a foot patrol of German troops in the Sarak-i-Bala area, wounding one trooper. A vehicle of the soldiers was also damaged.

Asserting responsibility for the assault, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed that eight foreign troops were killed and two ISAF tanks destroyed.
