Afghanistan: Two US Soldiers Killed When Vehicle Slides Into River, Another Dies From IED
KABUL: Two US soldiers drowned when their Humvee vehicle slid into a river in Afghanistan, the military said on Friday. Two other soldiers escaped before the vehicle entered the Kunar River northeast of Jalalabad in the country’s east on Thursday, a military statement said. “One was treated and released by US military medical personnel at the scene and the other was transported to Bagram Airfield for treatment. He is in good condition and is expected to be released soon,” the statement said. The Humvee was part of a convoy conducting operations against “enemy forces” and was travelling along the river, which was swollen by melting snow from nearby mountains and from recent rainfall, the military said. One US soldier was killed and another wounded on Thursday when their Humvee was hit by a suspected roadside bomb in Paktika province, the military said. afp
