Saturday, November 22, 2008

KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - Eight Canadian soldiers hurt in an improvised-bomb explosion were well enough to contact their families about the incident themselves, military authorities say.

The troops were riding in an armoured vehicle when it was hit by a blast in Arghandab District north of here Friday afternoon.

The soldiers were evacuated by helicopter to the Canadian-run NATO hospital at Kandahar Airfield, where they received treatment for their injuries.
