(ANSA) - Kabul, September 25 - A Polish anti-bomb squad in
Afghanistan called to investigate a suspicious package left on
the side of the road in the northeastern province of Kunar
discovered a newborn baby, not an explosive, NATO authorities
said on Tuesday.
The Polish unit in the country as part of the NATO-led
International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) arrived at the
scene in full protective gear after receiving a call alerting
them to a possible "Taleban-made bomb".
"We took all necessary precautions when nearing the
package. When we got close enough, we realized it was moving,"
said a Polish forces spokesman from the Waghez base.
After lifting a cardboard covering, the soldiers found an
infant no more than two-days old swathed in a towel.
Medical staff at the Polish military base performed a
check-up while a soldier was assigned to purchase a bottle and
formula at a local pharmacy.
The girl, named Pola by the soldiers, will be entrusted to
Afghanistan State authorities, said a Polish military spokesman.
