    KABUL, May 1 (Xinhua) -- A roadside bomb exploded, wounding two soldiers of the U.S.-led coalition forces in the southern Kandahar province Monday morning, a U.S. military spokesman confirmed.

    "We have one vehicle damaged and two coalition personnel were wounded," Quentin Innis told reporters at the site of explosion.

    The explosion caused by an improvised explosive device, he added.

    However, he refused to disclose the identity or nationality of the soldiers.

    Troops from different countries, with majority of them from the United states and Canada, are in the southern region to help the Afghan government stabilize security in the post-Taliban nation.

    Over 300 people including 15 American soldiers have lost their lives in Taliban-linked insurgency since the beginning of this year. Enditem
