Soldiers not only have to deal with fighting the Taliban but now also Swine flu

Swedish Soldiers in Afghanistan Contract Swine Flu

A soldier in the Swedish forces serving in Afghanistan is being treated for a confirmed case of swine flu along with four colleagues with suspected swine flu.

Those affected have been isolated and cared for by the base doctor and nurses. It's not yet known if those troops serving over there will be given a swine flu jab.

Sweden has about 500 soldiers stationed in a largely peaceful area in the north.
