From the FS18 training exercises on Gotland

The next Swedish force to be sent to Afghanistan is currently training on the island of Gotland. The 494 members of the FS 18 unit will be part of the ISAF force, and will be stationed in northern Afghanistan from November until May next year. During the training exercises, the force met the press, and our reporter Alberico Lecchiniasked Corporal Daniel Jansson about his hopes for the mission.
