PUL-I-ALAM (PANinfo-icon): Six Afghans working for international troops in central Logar province were injured in a militant attack on Wednesday, police said.

The six were travelling in a bus when gunmen attacked them in the Khadir area on the outskirts of Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital, police chief, Col. Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Laiwani, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
