Afghan police and coalition soldiers found six bombs near a school in a village in Paktika province on Wednesday. They destroyed the bombs in a controlled explosion.
This is the fifth time in a week that rebels have put bombs near schools or other education buildings in eastern Afghanistan. In three places, the bombs went off and damaged the buildings. No one was hurt.
Soldiers also found a load of heroin while searching a house in the village of Marjeh, Helmand province.
A Pennsylvania man is charged with illegally getting free computer devices so he could sell them on eBay.
A grand jury indicted (accused) Thomas Kline on Wednesday. He is accused of defrauding the SonicWALL company. This company makes computer firewall devices. Buyers register the serial number of their devices with the company. If a device has a problem that can't be fixed, the company sends the buyer a new one.
The indictment says the man, Thomas Kline, registered the serial numbers of devices he hadn't really bought. Then he reported problems with them. In this way, it says, he got hundreds of new devices from SonicWALL. He tried to sell them on eBay.
The FBI is warning U.S. soldiers' families about a new scam (stealing by telling lies).
Criminals go to sites like Facebook and learn about soldiers in Iraq and their families. Some people put lots of personal information on these sites, so it can be very easy.
Then the criminals contact a relative of a soldier -- often a grandparent. They pretend to be the soldier and say they are coming home on leave. But they ask the grandparent not to tell the soldier's parents, so it will be a surprise.
Later, the criminal calls the grandparent, says their car has broken down, and asks them to wire money.
The FBI says, before sending money to anyone, you should ask questions that only that person could answer. Or you and your relatives can choose a code word for times like this.
