2 Danish soldiers injured in rocket attack in Afghanistan

The Danish army says two soldiers were injured, one of them seriously, when a rocket hit their armored vehicle in a battle with Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. The army says the Danish unit came under attack Wednesday in the southern district of Gereshk. The injured soldiers were to be transferred to Denmark for treatment. No details were given on their injuries. Denmark has about 700 troops serving in the NATO force in Afghanistan. Most of them are based in the southern volatile Helmand province. Fourteen Danish troops have been killed in Afghanistan since Denmark joined the US-led coalition in 2002.
