Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan 08/06/10

The federal Coalition is deeply saddened by the death of two Australian soldiers in Afghanistan.

The thoughts and prayers of all Australians will be with their families at this time.

Their deaths are a tragic reminder of the enormous dangers our forces face on a daily basis in Afghanistan.

Australians are immensely proud of the men and women of the Australian Defence Force. In Afghanistan they are fighting in the front line of the war against terror, in defence of the values we hold dear.

Today, we mourn the loss of two brave Australians. On behalf of the Coalition, I honour and acknowledge their sacrifice and extend our deepest sympathies to their loved ones.
