A roadside bomb has killed a Canadian soldier west of Kandahar city, bringing to 108 the total number of Canadian troops who have died as part of the Afghan mission since it began in 2002. Twenty-five-year-old Sapper Sean David Greenfield was killed Saturday when his armored vehicle struck a roadside bomb in the volatile Zhari district west of Kandahar city. This has been a particularly bloody winter for Canadian soldiers deployed to Afghanistan. Greenfield is the second Canadian soldier to be killed this year, and the 11th to die since December - all of them in roadside bomb attacks.
