ISAF Service Member Killed in Southern Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan – An International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service member was killed yesterday when the vehicle he was travelling in struck an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in southern Afghanistan.

“We announce with great sorrow that an ISAF service member was the victim of another cowardly attack by a roadside bomb emplaced by insurgents,” said Brigadier-General Eric Tremblay, ISAF Spokesperson.  “I offer my sincere sympathies to his loved ones as they cope with their loss.”

It is ISAF policy to not release the nationality of any casualties before the relevant national authority doing so.

The next of kin have been informed.
