Our New Zealand Soldiers remain in Afghanistan.

These were the ten soldiers who have died in Afghanistan.

On the 21 of August 2012, New Zealand’s Prime Minister, John Key, has reported that New Zealand forces will be remain in Afghanistan until 2013, because three more New Zealanders have died. Corporal Luke Tamatea, Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker and Private Richard Harris, these were the three people who were killed during the war in Afghanistan by an improvised explosive device (I.E.D), which is a bomb. On the 4th of August, Lance Corporals Rory Malone and Pralli Durrer were killed during an ambush in the area of Bamyan. Ten New Zealand soldiers have now died in Afghanistan. John Key says “the New Zealand soldiers have been in the area since 2003”, and that they will be brought home in April next year.

  1. Great report writing Dante. I think it's pretty sad what happened to these soldiers but their farewell and services were quite honorable. Have you seen the farewell haka that the other men in the armed forces performed? It is very powerful. Here is the link:
    Keep up the great work and I'll try visit again soon.
