Polish soldier killed, two others wounded in Afghanistan

A Polish paratrooper was killed in Afghanistan yesterday and two other soldiers wounded when a landmine exploded in the southeastern province of Ghazni, Poland's army said.
The Polish forces were leading an operation, alongside Afghan troops, to destroy a hidden explosives pile when the blast happened, the army said in a statement.
The death brings the number of Polish soldiers killed since the start of the war in 2001 to 42.
With 1,600 troops, Poland accounts for one of the larger contingents of NATO's International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. From October Poland is set to reduce the number to 1,000.
