KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): One Croatian troop was killed and two others were injured on Wednesday in a suicide attack in Kabul, the Defence Ministry in Zagreb said.

"Unfortunately, the attack on Croatian soldiers in Kabul occurred early in the morning. According to the latest information, we have three injured soldiers.

“One of them has severe head injuries that are life-threatening. The other two suffered harder injuries,” said Defence Minister Damir Krstičević.

He added: “The other two soldiers had injuries to their arms and legs and that was easier," the ministry added.

However, Croatian defense ministry later said one of the soldiers who had sustained severe injuries succumbed.

Firdous Faramarz, spokesman for Kabul police, told Pajhwok Afghan News the incident took place in the Tarakhel locality of Deh Sabz district at around 9am.

Earlier, the Resolute Support (RS) mission said: "A Coalition vehicle was hit by an explosive device this morning in Kabul. No Coalition members were killed."
