2012-08-10 14:25

In the southern Afghan province of Helmand a military has shot and killed three U.S. Special Forces servicemen. As reported by the RIA Novosti with reference to the spokesman of International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan (ISAF), the incident took place last night in the Sangin district.


Details of the event are being specified.

Killings of American troops in Afghanistan are frequent. This spring in Afghanistan, a soldier of the NATO mission was killed. A few days earlier, a stranger, dressed in Afghan army uniform, was shot dead by the two British soldiers in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan. This happened on the territory of one of NATO bases. In the ensuing skirmish the killer and one Afghan soldier were also killed.

In early March 2012, as a result of a mine explosion in southern Afghanistan's Kandahar province, nine soldiers, including one foreigner, died.

Explosion occurred late on Saturday, next to a group of soldiers patrolling the area by car.

"The incident occurred at 7.30 pm local time in a village in the county of Argnandab when a mine, planted by the insurgents, exploded near a military vehicle. As a result, nine people were killed, including five police officers, foreign military and a local translator", the head of Argnandab county administration Shah Mohammad, the ITAR-TASS reported.
