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.
