Bomb kills five Polish soldiers in Afghanistan


Five Polish soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan.

It is the deadliest single incident for Poland since it joined the NATO-led coalition there almost a decade ago.

The Taliban says it was behind the roadside bomb that blew up the troops’ convoy in Ghazni province. It happened in a village where Polish forces have been involved in reconstruction work on historical sites.

Poland has some 2,500 soldiers in Afghanistan. A total of 36 Polish troops have died there since Warsaw deployed its forces in the country in 2002.
