The Georgian military says six of its soldiers have been killed in a suicide attack in southern Afghanistan.

General Irakli Dzneladze, chief of the Georgian Army Joint Staff, said during a news conference in Tbilisi that the troops were killed when militants blew up a truck packed with explosives outside their base in restive Helmand Province.

Dzneladze said several soldiers were also injured.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

The incident comes after three Georgian soldiers were killed in a similar attack in Helmand on May 13.
