Apologies for the sources, but I thought it worth posting as it been very quiet in Afghan for a while now. Sadly the threat it still very present.
I’ve linked another report on the incident as well, sounds like a large firefight, but we got some of them too at least.
The BBC sez, “he was injured in an attack by insurgents”. Thanks Smartisan.
