KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN — The Canadian military has identified the soldier who died of non-combat injuries in Afghanistan.

Master Cpl. Francis Roy, a member of the Special Forces regiment, was found by fellow soldiers early Saturday at a forward operating base in Kandahar city.

Brig.-Gen. Dean Milner, the commander of the Canadian task force, says Roy was a logistician, responsible for transport of troops and equipment.

An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death is still being carried out by military police.

Roy, originally from Rimouski, Que., was on his first overseas deployment with special forces and becomes the 157th Canadian to die as a result of the Afghan mission.

His age was not released.

The task force senior chaplain, Maj. Grahame Thompson, said it is a tough time for the soldiers with only three weeks remaining in the combat mission.
