KABUL, Afghanistan - An Italian soldier was killed in an ambush Wednesday while he was distributing food and clothes to civilians, Italy's Defense Ministry said in Rome.

Italian Premier Romano Prodi condemned the attack east of Kabul, saying that the dead soldier and his party were ambushed while aiding in Afghanistan's reconstruction. Another soldier was wounded, the ministry said.

Italy has more than 2,000 troops in NATO's International Security Assistance Force, mostly deployed in the western province of Herat and in Kabul.
