Kabul: A spokesman says a Provincial Governor has escaped an assassination attempt but four Afghan soldiers in the same convoy were killed.
A roadside bomb exploded Friday as Halim Fidai, the Governor of the central province of Wardak, was on his way to inspect a school after meeting with elders in the Jagatu district.
Spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said on Saturday that the Governor was unharmed but four Afghan soldiers in a different vehicle were killed and another wounded.

He said two people, including a local Taliban commander, were arrested as they tried to flee the scene of the attack.
