IED Kills 2 Canadians

Cpl. Christian Bobbitt, 23, and another unidentified soldier, both based in Valcartier, Que., were killed Saturday in the blast, which occurred around 3:20 p.m. local time Saturday, 15 kilometres west of Kandahar city.

They had dismounted from their vehicle to secure an area west of Kandahar after an earlier blast when another improvised explosive device detonated, Brig.-Gen. Jonathan Vance said.

Another soldier was seriously injured and is in stable condition in hospital, Vance said.
In other news: looks like Rosie is back in Afghanistan. Good....
