August 30, 2010
KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN — Another Canadian soldier has died from wounds suffered in Afghanistan.

Cpl. Brian Pinksen, a member of 2nd Battalion, Royal Newfoundland Regiment, based in Corner Brook, N.L., was wounded by an IED while on patrol in the Panjwaii district of Kandahar on Aug. 22.

Pinksen was treated and flown to a military hospital in Germany, where he died earlier today from his wounds.

It’s the first Canadian death related to the mission in Afghanistan since July 20, when Sapper Brian Collier was killed by an IED while on a foot patrol near near Nakhonay, about 15 kilometres west of Kandahar city.

The latest death brings to 152 the total number of Canadian soldiers who have died as part of the Afghan mission since it began in 2002.

In total, 471 international troops have been killed in Afghanistan so far this year, according to the independent website icasualties.org.
