Three Italian soldiers died in western Afghanistan on Monday after their vehicle fell into a ditch, police said.
A convoy of Italian forces and USAID workers were on their way to survey a dam in the Shindand district of western Herat province, when they slid off the road in wet conditions, said Abdul Rauf Ahmadi, a police spokesman.
USAID is a government agency providing U.S. economic and humanitarian assistance.
Damn you Koopa!
Guess their princess was in another castle.
While I'm sympathetic to the families, I am wondering why this is top news...they had a traffic accident, and it wasn't a war-related attack.
