ISAF soldier killed in southern Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan – An ISAF soldier has been killed and another injured Sept. 17 following an explosion in southern Afghanistan.

“ISAF’s mission to secure a better future for the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan will continue despite the dangers faced.  Day by day our troops make a very real and positive difference to the lives of normal hardworking Afghan people,” said Wing Commander Antony McCord, a spokesman for Regional Command South. “Our thoughts at this time are with the family and friends of the soldier who died in this incident.”

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