    Denmark says 2 soldiers killed in attacks in southern Afghanistan


    COPENHAGEN, Denmark - The Danish army says two soldiers have been killed in separate attacks in southern Afghanistan.

    The Army Operational Command says a Danish-British patrol came under attack Thursday in the southern district of Gereshk.

    The army says one soldier was fatally wounded when his vehicle was hit by a bomb. The patrol came under fire shortly afterwards.

    The army says a second soldier was killed by another explosion when Danish and British troops rushed to help their wounded colleague.

    Denmark has about 700 troops serving in the NATO force in Afghanistan. Most of them are based in the volatile southern Helmand province.

    Eighteen Danish soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan since Denmark joined the U.S.-led coalition in 2002.
