Three Czech soldiers were wounded in the Afghan province of Logar on Tuesday after their vehicle hit a land mine. The soldiers, members of the Czech Army’s Provincial Reconstruction Team, only suffered minor injuries and were treated back at the Shank military base. The explosion was caused by an improvised land mine, a spokesperson for the Czech Army said, and damaged the front part of the vehicle. The incident was the latest in a series of attacks on the Czech contingent in the region; three Czech soldiers have died since the beginning of the Afghan mission in 2007.
