ISAF soldier killed in southern Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan - At approximately 11:16 this morning an IED was detonated in the vicinity of Musa Qaleh District in Helmand province. As a result of the explosion three civilians were injured including one child.

ANA and ISAF troops immediately responded and provided medical assistance. The casualties were taken to hospital facilities for further treatment.

ISAF troops were not involved in this incident and continue to work hard alongside the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) to make Afghanistan a more secure place so that the Afghan people can go about their business without fear of attack.

This action will not deter the ANSF or ISAF in our efforts to improve the quality of life for Afghan citizens.
