RC-East ambush deadly for two ISAF personnel

KABUL, Afghanistan – An ISAF civilian interpreter and an ISAF servicemember were killed June 2 when their convoy was ambushed around noon in Regional Command East.

Seven other ISAF servicemembers were wounded by the small-arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades.  The wounded have been medically evacuated to ISAF medical facilities.  Their conditions are unknown at this time although none are considered life threatening.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the servicemember and the civilian who were killed and those who were injured in yesterday's attack," said Lt. Col. Maria Carl, ISAF spokesperson. 

In accordance with NATO policy, ISAF does not release a casualty’s nationality prior to the relevant national authority doing so.
