Two foreign troopers fall in Afghanistan
Two foreign troopers with the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) have died in Afghanistan in two separate incidents, Press TV reported.
In one incident, an explosive device kills a Danish soldier and injures two others in Afghanistan's restive Helmand province, Denmark's military said.
The incident took place on Friday when their vehicle hit the device. Three other Danish soldiers also received minor injuries. All the injured have been transferred at a field hospital and are undergoing treatment, the military statement said.
Helmand province is a Taliban stronghold in the south of the country, where 42 percent of the world's total opium is produced.
The killing raises the Danish military's death toll to 29 since international forces were deployed in Afghanistan in late 2001.
This Scandinavian country of 5.5 million people has suffered more deaths than any other country proportionally to the number of troops it has in ISAF.
More than 700 Danish troops are taking part in NATO's ISAF in Afghanistan.
In another incident, a young Spanish soldier died of his injuries sustained during an accident at a vehicle maintenance site at the Spanish military base in Herat Province.
An investigation has been launched to clarify the circumstances of the accident, which caused the death of 24-year-old Christian Quishpe Aguirre, who is of Ecuadorian descent.
Reports say he was run over by a vehicle and died later on Friday.
Spain's 1,068 troops currently in Afghanistan are located in the west of the country.
