KABUL (AFP) - The son of the Netherlands' new military chief was one of two Dutch NATO soldiers killed by a bomb in southern Afghanistan on Friday, officials said, a day after a suicide blast took 25 Afghan lives.

Taliban militants claimed responsibility for the roadside attack that killed Lieutenant Dennis van Uhm, the son of General Peter van Uhm, and said the attack was in retaliation to an anti-Islam film by a Dutch MP.

General van Uhm was named top commander of the Dutch armed forces only on Thursday.
