The Defence Force said that at approximately 9.20am (Afghanistan time) yesterday, the last vehicle in a convoy was hit by an improvised explosive device in Bamiyan.

The attack occurred northwest of Do Abe, near where Lance Corporals Rory Malone and Pralli Durrer were killed in a firefight on August 5.

The soldiers were on their way to the Romero base which is around 10 to 15 kilometres away by road.

The remaining personnel in the patrol secured the location and awaited more support.

Taleban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement.

  1. And so the nightmare continues…My heart goes out to the families of the soldiers – the most deadly single attack on NZ soldiers since we have been supporting this illegal war and occupation. Meanwhile our political leaders ignore the scientific evidence of 911 and vow to stay the course 🙁

    911 truth is a practical path to peace. We owe it to our lost NZ solidiers and the many innocent victims in Afghanistan to keep demanding our leaders to open a new Investigation into the events of 911.

  2. Mike sent this excellent letter to all tv stations, media today…

    Dear Producer

    In view of the latest tragic deaths of our soldiers in Afghanistan I urge you to screen this documentary recently broadcast on Colorado PBS-TV and streamed worldwide.

    Most people know that the war in Iraq was based on a lie – “Weapons of Mass Destruction”, but most people are unaware that the war in Afghanistan was also based on a lie.
    After viewing this documentary, the public can decide if these tragic deaths have been worthwhile.
    This new documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth features dozens of credentialed experts in architecture, engineering, and other related fields who argue that the World Trade Center (WTC) Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were not brought down on September 11, 2001, by the office fires ignited by the jetliner impacts, but rather by explosive controlled demolition. The 43 architects, engineers, physicists, chemists, and others interviewed in the film represent more than 14,000 concerned citizens and over 1,700 architects and engineers from around the world who have signed a petition demanding a new, independent investigation. The film details scientific, forensic evidence that the group claims was omitted or misrepresented by the official reports. Official reports blame the unprecedented destruction of all three modern skyscrapers on fires and on the removal of insulation by the jetliner impacts. No jetliner crashed into WTC 7.

    The documentary presents interviews with several psychologists who share their ideas about why the evidence discussed by the technical experts in the film has been difficult for many to face, and how to make approaching others with this controversial issue easier. Family members of 9/11 victims speak to the viewers explaining why they are still not happy with the answers they’ve been given by our government. They ask that we join them in looking at what these experts have to say.

    Kind regards

  3. The Russians lost 58,000 people trying to occupy Afghanistan , even if people can not understand basic physic they can understand recent history .
    If we are in Afghanistan in overall’s and tractors the locals will know we are there to “rebuild” ,if we are there in armoured vehicle and carrying automatic weapons they will know we are occupiers !
    911 was the Casus Belli for the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and we have no proof to back it’s legitimacy .
    How many Kiwi’s need die to support Americas lies ?
