Six Canadian soldiers dead in Afghanistan
by UPI

HELMAND - Six Canadian soldiers died when a NATO-led force in Afghanistan was hit with a bomb.

The Canadians died when their vehicle either struck or was struck by an explosive device, the BBC reported Sunday, citing a statement from NATO's International Security Assistance Force.

"Our hearts ache for them and their families," said Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The incident was one of the worst that the NATO-led force in Afghanistan has seen for several months, the BBC said.

"Sadly, today has been a difficult day in Afghanistan," said Harper while visiting the French town of Verlinghem to mark the 90th anniversary of the World War I battle of Vimy Ridge. "I know that as we gather here on Easter Sunday our hearts and prayers are with them."
