ISAF soldier dies of non-combat injury

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan – Yesterday, an ISAF soldier succumbed to a gunshot wound shortly after 7 p.m. in Southern Afghanistan. ISAF is presently investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident, although enemy action has been ruled out as the incident occurred within the secure confines of an ISAF base.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the deceased.

As reported by the Canadian Ministry of Defence, the soldier was Canadian.
