PostSubject: Two Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan   June 8th 2010, 11:23 am

Two Australian soldiers serving with the 1st Mentoring Task Force in Afghanistan have been killed in action.

The two soldiers from the Brisbane-based 2nd Combat Engineer Regiment died as a result of wounds sustained when an improvised explosive device detonated yesterday morning, Afghanistan time.

They were part of an Australian dismounted patrol conducting operations in the Mirabad Valley region of Oruzgan province.

One of the soldiers was killed at the time of the explosion. The other soldier received emergency first aid from his patrol mates and was subsequently aero-medically evacuated to a nearby ISAF hospital. Sadly, the soldier died from his wounds.

There were no other Australian or Afghan casualties, however, an explosive detection dog also died in the incident.
