Four Czech soldiers who were injured in a bomb attack in Afghanistan this week are expected to return to the Czech Republic in the next few days. A military plane left for Afghanistan on Friday to fly them back home. One Czech soldier was killed in the attack. The troops, who were travelling in a Humvee military vehicle when the attack occurred, were serving with a Czech Provincial Reconstruction Team in the province of Logar, south-east of Kabul. In March a military policeman became the first Czech combat casualty of the modern era when he was killed in a suicide attack in Helmand province. Last year another Czech soldier died in Afghanistan in an accident caused by flooding.
