Romanian defense officials say a 31-year-old soldier has been killed in a roadside bomb attack in Afghanistan.
A defense ministry statement says Sgt. Maj. Florin Badiceanu died Tuesday after the attack on a Romanian troops convoy in Afghanistan's Zabul province. Another Romanian soldier was injured in the attack.
President Traian Basescu has sent his condolences to Badiceanu's family.
He is the 12th Romanian to die in Afghanistan. Romania has 1,035 troops in the country.
