People have donated nearly four million crowns in support of the families of the Czech soldiers who were killed in a suicide attack in Afghanistan on Sunday.
The collection is organised by the Defence Ministry’s Military Solidarity Fund, which aims to help war veterans in unexpected life situations and support the relatives of deceased or injured soldiers.
The remains of the three Czech soldiers returned to the country on Wednesday. Sergeant Martin Marcin, Corporal Kamil Beneš and Corporal Patrik Štěpánek have been posthumously promoted to the rank of officer and will be buried with military honours.
