Insurgent rocket attack injures three children

BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – Three Afghan children were severely wounded when an insurgent rocket fell short of an ISAF base in eastern Paktika province around 6:30 p.m.

The children, and their escorts, have been medically evacuated to an ISAF treatment facility. 

“This is just another example of how insurgents’ indiscriminate targeting is harming Afghans,” said Lt. Col. Maria Carl, ISAF spokesperson.
