Great sadness at latest death in Afghanistan

The Australian Greens today expressed great sadness at the loss of another young Australian soldier's life in Afghanistan.

“The Greens join all Australians in gratitude for the service of the 23 year old combat engineer killed in Afghanistan overnight,” Australian Greens Acting Leader, Senator Christine Milne, said

“We offer condolences to the family and friends of this young man tragically lost.”

Twenty-seven Australian soldiers have now been killed while serving in Afghanistan.
