Three more Australian soldiers have been wounded in Afghanistan after their armoured truck hit a roadside bomb.
The military says the incident happened on Tuesday when the soldiers from the 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment Task Group, were moving between bases in the Oruzgan province.
Their Bushmaster vehicle hit an improvised explosive device and the soldiers received first aid at the scene before being taken by helicopter to Tarin Kot with minor wounds.
Two have been discharged while the third has been transferred to Kandahar Air Field for further treatment.
All three are now in satisfactory condition.
