Un soldat turc trouve la mort en Afghanistan

ANKARA (AFP) – The commander of Turkey's contingent in the NATO force in Afghanistan and another soldier have been killed in a road accident in northern Afghanistan, the foreign ministry said Wednesday.
The crash that killed Colonel Faruk Sungur and his driver happened Tuesday as they were on their way from the northern city of Mazar-i Sharif to Kabul, ministry spokesman Burak Ozugergin told reporters.
Two other Turkish soldiers travelling in the vehicle were injured, he said.
With the accident in Faryab province, the number of foreign military deaths in Afghanistan this year passed the 200 mark.
Turkey has around 730 soldiers in the NATO-led force in Afghanistan.
