    KABUL, Afghanistan — Two International Security Assistance Force service members were killed and six wounded in an IED strike in southern Afghanistan this afternoon.

    "On behalf of all ISAF personnel, I wish to convey our most sincere sympathies to the family members and friends of these brave Soldiers. Our thoughts and prayers are with them in this most difficult time" said Brigadier-General Éric Tremblay, ISAF spokesperson. "ISAF's efforts are dangerous and difficult but we are committed to helping build a safe and prosperous Afghanistan and we will succeed in this endeavour."

    It is ISAF policy not to release the nationality of any casualty prior to the relevant national authority doing so.
