Two soldiers wounded in Afghanistan

TWO Australian soldiers were wounded by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan's Uruzgan province on Tuesday.

The soldiers, from the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Australian Regiment Task Group, were travelling in a Bushmaster armoured vehicle on the Deh Rawud region when the IED exploded.

One soldier will likely return to Australia to recover from serious wounds, while the second soldier received only minor wounds.

The two wounded soldiers bring the number of those wounded in the conflict in 2012 to 17 soldiers.

Both soldiers have already contacted their families.
