A Swedish patrol was involved in a firefight in Afghanistan on Wednesday morning while the soldiers were towing a vehicle west of the town of Mazar-e-Sharif.


According to the Swedish defence forces no Swedish soldier emerged from the incident with any injuries.

It is as yet unknown if any of the Afghani officials working with the Swedes were hurt in the attack. The attackers were able to escape without incurring any losses.

The Swedish soldiers remain at the location while hostilities are no longer ongoing.
