More Swedish Troops to Afghanistan Now

Published fredag 2 december 2005 kl 11.50
Swedish forces serving with ISAF in Afghanistan

The Swedish military is sending an additional 40 to 50 soldiers to Afghanistan as soon as possible.

This is because of the attack last week that killed one Swedish peacekeeper, and injured three others. The extra force will provide security for the civilian workers building a base for the 200 Swedish soldiers expected to be sent to northern Afghanistan early next year. Parliament votes on the increase next week.

There are currently 100 Swedish soldiers serving with the ISAF forces in Afghanistan.
