Afghan suicide attack kills one Italian soldier, injures four others

KABUL, November 9 (RIA Novosti) - One Italian soldier was killed and four others were seriously injured in a suicide bomb attack in the western Afghan province of Herat, local security officials said on Sunday.

The attack occurred on Sunday when a suicide bomber rammed a vehicle full of explosives into a NATO-led convoy in the area of Shindand, south of Herat. One local resident also received injuries, the security officials said.

The Taliban movement, ousted from power in Afghanistan after a U.S.-led military operation in 2001, has stepped up its activities over the past year, with an increase in suicide bombings and other attacks.

On October 16, Taliban militants stopped two buses carrying 77 people in the southern Kandahar region and massacred over 30 of the passengers, accusing them of collaborating with the central government.
