U.S. convoy returning from hospital fired on outside Kandahar
BAGRAM, Afghanistan (AP) -- A U.S. military convoy returning from the hospital in Kandahar was fired on late Tuesday on the outskirts of the city and one U.S. soldier was wounded, a military spokesman said.
Col. Roger King said the Americans had been visiting the hospital where victims of a U.S. air attack Monday were undergoing treatment. Their vehicles came under fire about 1.5 miles outside the city.
One soldier was shot in the foot and was undergoing treatment at a clinic at the U.S. base at Kandahar airport, King said.
Afghans traveling with the convoy returned fire, but King said he did not know if they hit any targets.
