Danish soldier killed in Afghanistan

A Danish soldier serving with the NATO-led forces in Afghanistan was killed on Monday when his tank drove over an improvised explosive device, the Danish military said.

The soldier was seriously injured in the blast and was evacuated by helicopter to a field hospital at Camp Bastion in southwestern Afghanistan where he died, the statement said.

The death brings to 16 the number of Danish troops killed in Afghanistan since it deployed soldiers there for NATO's International Security Assistance Force in 2001 - one of the highest per-capita death tolls among coalition forces.

Denmark currently has some 700 troops in the country, most of whom are stationed in the southwestern Helmand province under British command.


My friend Martin from Britmodeller PM'd me this;

the Danish soldier who was killed on Monday was Oversergent (OR-7 Staff sergeant) Henrik Christiansen from Livgarden (Royal Guards).
