Danish Soldier Killed, 2 Wounded Near Basra

#1
A Danish soldier was killed and two others injured when their vehicle was struck by an IED near Al Harta north of Basra. There were two IED against the Danes in June but there were no casualties in that incident. My condolences to our Danish allies.

Pretty tough call for the Danes - they've been running a cheeky AO in Iraq for the last 3 years, with loads of heavy tribal fighting. Until about 2 months ago they were getting IED hits almost once a fortnight - and being very lucky. I guess their luck has run out. Until yesterday the only person they had lost in the 3 year period was a single soldier to friendly fire. A great bunch, solid soldiers.

RIP, you crazy Danes
