Three Croatian soldiers serving in Afghanistan have been wounded, one seriously, in a suicide attack on their convoy outside Kabul, the country’s defense minister said on Wednesday.
The soldiers were en route to Kabul airport when a motorcycle carrying a suicide bomber slammed into one of their vehicles, Damir Krsticevic told a news conference in Zagreb. According to Reuters.

One of the soldiers suffered serious head injuries in the blast and remains in life-threatening condition. The other two received arm and leg injuries and were stable, Krsticevic said.
“It was an isolated attack and all other members of the Croatian contingent are safe,” Kristicevic said.
Croatia, a NATO member country, first deployed troops to Afghanistan in 2003. At least nine Croatian troops have been injured there.
