Swedish Soldier Injured in Afghanistan

The Swedish military says one of its soldiers has been injured after an explosive device blew up under vehicles carrying troops in Afghanistan.

The wounded man was on patrol in the northern province of Jowzjan when the bomb exploded on Sunday morning. He suffered injuries to his back and was airlifted to a German field hospital, but isn’t thought to be seriously hurt.

Sweden has around 330 soldiers in Afghanistan, as part of a NATO security force.
