LITCHFIELD, MINN. — The Minnesota National Guard says five of its members have been injured in an attack in Afghanistan.

Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Kevin Olson says the five members are from the 849th Mobility Augmentation Company based in Litchfield. They were injured during an attack on Forward Operating Base Pasab in Kandahar Province Monday.

Olson says one solider is recovering in Germany and the other four are being treated in Afghanistan. Their identities or the extent of their injuries were not released.

An assault by suicide bombers and gunmen against the NATO base in Kandahar’s Zhari district Monday killed one service member, who has not been identified. NATO and an Afghan official say all nine insurgents were killed during the attack.
