Rockets hit South Korean Afghan rebuilding base
Seoul: South Korea says four rockets have hit the country`s base in northern Afghanistan. No casualties have been reported.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Kim Young-sun said on Thursday about 120 construction and security personnel were at the base in the northern Afghan province of Parwan when the rockets struck Wednesday.
Kim says the Taliban or a militant group in the region may have fired the rockets. He says no group has yet claimed responsibility.
The incident comes a day before the South Korean reconstruction team`s plan to officially launch its mission.
In 2007, South Korea withdrew troops from Afghanistan following a hostage standoff in which the Taliban killed two South Koreans after demanding that Seoul immediately withdraw its forces.
