Roadside bomb kills 2 Italian soldiers in Afghanistan

Two Italian soldiers were killed and two others seriously wounded when their convoy struck a roadside bomb in Afghanistan, the Italian army said on Monday.

The convoy hit the bomb while on its way from the western city of Herat to Bala Murghab in the north, the army said.

Military deaths in Afghanistan in the past have prompted calls from Italy to pull out and a poll last year showed a majority of Italians want their troops to leave.

Italy has about 2,400 soldiers for Afghanistan invasion, mainly deployed in the western part of the country.
