Two New Zealand aid workers have been caught up in a failed bomb attack in Afghanistan.
The New Zealanders were shaken but unharmed when there was an attempt to detonate a bomb on a motorcycle outside Mirwais Hospital in the Kandahar district on Thursday.
"Fortunately only the fuse detonated, so the injuries sustained were instead minor," the New Zealand Red Cross said.
As a result of the attack the hospital has closed for three days and most of the Red Cross staff have been evacuated to Kabul, Radio New Zealand reported.
