One Afghan soldier was injured as a roadside bomb struck a military vehicle in Koz Kunar district of the eastern Nangarhar province on Monday, a spokesman for the provincial government said.

"A mine planted by militants struck a military vehicle in Bashi Kala village of Koz Kunar district this morning, injuring a soldier," Ahmad Zia Abdulzai told reporters.

Without giving more details, the spokesman said an investigation has been underway.

Locals said the violent incident happened at around 10:00 a.m. local time (0530 GMT) when an army vehicle was passing the area.
