    KABUL, Afghanistan — Earlier this afternoon, an International Security Assistance Force convoy, in southern Afghanistan, struck an improvised explosive device resulting in the wounding of soldiers. When helicopters arrived to evacuate the wounded soldiers the insurgents opened fire on the medical evacuation operation, damaging one of the helicopters.

    An attack on clearly marked evacuation aircraft is in clear violation of international accords for the protection of medical personnel

    One helicopter left the scene with all the wounded personnel whilst the damaged helicopter remains on the ground.
