Disguised militants attack Afghani soldiers

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Some 2,000 Afghan security forces rushed to an eastern province Wednesday after dozens of suspected Taliban rebels wearing army uniforms killed eight police and soldiers.
As dozens of army trucks carrying reinforcements made their way to the Nuristan province, a roadside bomb exploded, killing a soldier and wounding five others, Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Mohammed Saher Azimi said.
By the time the troops reached the site of the attack in Nuristan, the militants had already fled into the nearby mountains that stretch into neighboring Pakistan, Interior Ministry spokesman Latfullah Mashal said.
