NZ aid workers in Afghan bombing
Fri, 22 Jun 2012 5:20p.m.
Two New Zealand aid workers have been caught up in a bombing incident in Afghanistan.
The two Red Cross staff were shaken but left uninjured when a bomb on a motorcycle was detonated outside a Kandahar hospital.
The Red Cross says the bomb was a targeted attack intended to kill, but only the fuse of the bomb detonated - causing minor injuries to two workers.
The organisation has suspended all its hospital activities for the next three days and staff have been evacuated.
