Mehtar Lam: Two rockets struck close to a transition ceremony held in the eastern Afghan province of Laghman on Tuesday, where foreign troops were handing control over to local forces.

A reporter at the scene said the rockets landed some 300 metres from a civilian and military compound in Mehtar Lam, a town some two kilometres from where the ceremony was held, attended by senior officials.
