A Polish officer was killed during an attack on a military convoy in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, making him the first soldier from Poland to be killed in the Afghan mission, the defense minister said. 2nd Lt. Lukasz Kurowski, 28, was killed in an exchange of fire some 20 kilometers southeast of a base in the city of Gardez, Aleksander Szczyglo said on TVN24 television.
