CANADA: CANADA – A Canadian soldier died in Afghanistan on Tuesday, the latest Canadian to die in the war in the country since 2001.
Canadian Army Sgt. Daniel L. Bloomberg, 30, died at the Canadian Forces Base Camp MacKenzie on Tuesday evening after he was wounded in an Afghan roadside bombing.
Bloomquist had been deployed to Afghanistan on the U,S.-led NATO mission.
He was one of nine Canadians killed in the NATO mission in Afghanistan in the past four years.
The Pentagon announced the death of Bloomquist on Tuesday.
The U.K.-based British defence ministry said the British soldier was killed by a roadside bomb near the Afghan-Kashmir border.
Bloombert was deployed to the base from April 2015 to November 2016.
A U.N. investigation said there were indications Bloomquist was not being treated properly in Afghanistan, which has seen more than 10,000 casualties and more than 8,700 deaths since the NATO campaign began.
The investigation into Bloomquist’s death is still ongoing, according to a spokesman for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
