Masood wounded by booby-trapped video camera: Afghan diplomat
MOSCOW, Sept 9 (AFP) -
Afghan opposition commander Ahmad Shah Masood was wounded Sunday in northern Afghanistan when a bomb concealed in a video camera went off while he was being interviewed by a group of journalists, a source at the Afghan embassy in Dushanbe told AFP.
The incident, which happened at his heavily-guarded residence in Khwaja Bahauddin, killed an official from Masood's opposition forces and wounded Masood in the leg, the source added.
Earlier, Interfax reported, also citing an Afghan embassy source in the Tajik capital, that Masood had been wounded when his vehicle was hit by an explosion near the frontline.
