Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan

Another Canadian soldier has been killed in Afghanistan, just two days after another died in a skirmish with insurgents. Master Cpl. Erin Doyle was killed Monday when insurgents attacked a remote combat outpost in the Panjwaii district of Kandahar province. He was the 90th Canadian soldier to die since the mission began in 2002. A second soldier was seriously injured in Monday's attack and taken to the multinational hospital at Kandahar Airfield for treatment. The attack happened just days after Master Cpl. Josh Roberts was killed in a firefight in neighboring Zhari district.
