KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan — Canadian Defense Minister Peter Mackay last night accused Pakistan and Iran of supplying weapons to insurgents, only half an hour before a rocket disrupted his Christmas game of field hockey with the troops here.
Witnesses described a plume of smoke and a column of orange flame in the direction of the impact, which was audible from a mile away.
Elsewhere, two European diplomats who went to one of Afghanistan’s most volatile regions have been asked to leave the country, wire agencies reported.
