Greens express sadness at soldier’s death in Afghanistan

23rd Nov 07

Greens Leader Bob Brown says the whole nation will be saddened by the news of another Australian

soldier dying in Afghanistan.

"I join all other Australians in expressing heartfelt condolences to Private Luke Worsley’s family, friends

and community," Senator Brown said in Hobart.

"This Australian has died in the service of our nation and for loved ones it is a tragedy."

The Australian Greens have opposed Australia’s military engagement in Afghanistan since the Bush

administration withdrew troops from Afghanistan to invade Iraq.

"Australia should be sending Afghanistan much greater civilian aid instead," Senator Brown said.
