QALAT (PANinfo-icon): Three NATOinfo-icon-led troops were wounded when their patrol vehicle struck a roadside bomb in the southern province of Zabul, the alliance said on Tuesday.

There were two explosions that hit one of the vehicles on the Kabulinfo-icon-Kandahar highway on the outskirts of Qalat, the provincial capital, on Monday, ISAFinfo-icon"s media office in the south said.

The blasts happened in Spin Ghabargi and Mughalzai areas, it said, adding a tank was damaged and three troops onboard were wounded. However, the statement did not reveal the extent of injuries sustained by the soldiers.

Sanaullah, a resident of the Mughalzai area, said the highway was blocked by foreign troops after the bomb attacks. He had no information about casualties.
