WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland's Defense Ministry says an improvised explosive device has killed a Polish soldier and wounded another one in Afghanistan.
The ministry said Pfc. Pawel Ordynski died Thursday when the mine exploded beneath the armored vehicle he was driving as his team patrolled an area of Ghazni province. The soldier wounded in the explosion was taken to a military hospital in stable condition.
Ordynski is 39th Polish soldier to be killed in Afghanistan since 2007.
