WARSAW, Poland (AP) — One Polish soldier was killed and two others wounded Tuesday in a suicide bomb attack in the Afghan capital, a military spokesman said.

Spokesman Lt. Col. Piotr Walatek said Sgt. Rafal Celebudzki was killed early Tuesday on a street in Kabul when a suicide attacker exploded a bomb near a passing coalition military convoy. Celebudzki, 38, was driving one of the vehicles. He had previously served in Iraq.

Walatek also said the other two soldiers' wounds were not life-threatening.

Celebudzki is the 44th Polish soldier killed in Afghanistan.
