1 ISAF soldier killed, 2 wounded

KABUL, Afghanistan – One ISAF soldier was killed and two were wounded when their convoy hit an improvised-explosive device in eastern Afghanistan.

The two wounded soldiers were medically evacuated by helicopter to an ISAF medical facility for treatment.  They are currently listed in stable condition. 

“The entire command mourns the loss of this soldier,” said Lt. Col. Maria Carl, ISAF spokesperson.  “Our thoughts are with the soldier’s family and unit members.  This soldier gave his life helping to bring peace and security to Afghanistan.”

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