According to New Zealand Defense Minister Jonathan Coleman, At-least two New Zealand soldiers have been killed and six others injured in Afghanistan.
The New Zealanders came under fire while assisting Afghan security forces in a battle against Taliban Mujahideen near a village south of Do Abe in the northeast of Bamyan province on Saturday, Coleman said in a statement issued on Sunday, Reuters reported.
"The NZDF [New Zealand Defense Force] was responding to local security forces coming under attack and it developed into a serious incident," the statement added.
The injured were evacuated to a military hospital.
At-least Two members of the Afghan security forces were also killed in the incident.
