It was the first death of Croatian soldier in Afghanistan since the NATO member state deployed troops there in 2003.

Defense Minister Damir Krsticevic told a press conference in Zagreb that the soldiers were on the way to Kabul airport when they hit a motorcycle with a suicide bomber mounted on their convoy.

A Croatian soldier named Josip Preski was seriously wounded in the head and later died in a US-run military hospital at the Bagram Air Base, the Defense Ministry and the presidency said in two statements.

The other two soldiers were wounded in the arm and leg were in a stable condition, the defense minister said. “It was a solo attack and the rest of the Croatian contingent was safe”.

The three soldiers are part of a 23-member Croatian advisory team under British command and charged with training the Afghan police.
