    Two Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan
    Canadian Forces CEFCOM NR–07.007 - April 11, 2007

    Two Canadian soldiers were killed and two others were injured, one seriously, when a roadside bomb exploded near their vehicle earlier today. The incident occurred shortly before 8 p.m. Kandahar time, approximately 38 km west of Kandahar City. These soldiers had been assisting another vehicle that had been struck by a roadside bomb earlier in the day, one soldier suffered only minor injuries in this earlier attack.

    The three injured soldiers were immediately evacuated to the multinational medical facility at Kandahar Airfield for treatment and are assessed as stable.

    The names of the casualties are being withheld pending next of kin notification.

    Today is another sad day for the Canadian Forces and our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of these fine soldiers. The incidents of the last few days, while challenging for Joint Task Force Afghanistan, have galvanized our determination to support and help the long-suffering people of Afghanistan.
