Swedish ISAF Force Increases

Published onsdag 7 december 2005 kl 17.19
Injured Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan

As expected, the Swedish Parliament has approved increasing the size of the Swedish contribution to the ISAF forces in Afghanistan.

The current level of 100 is being doubled, but the legislation allows an increase to a maximum of 375.

The vote comes two weeks after four Swedish soldiers were injured in a blast while on patrol in northern Afghanistan. One later died, and two are still in critical condition.
