Two Canadian soldiers and an Afghan interpreter were killed Saturday after the vehicle they were travelling in struck a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan, local media reported citing military officials.

Three other Canadian soldiers were wounded in the blast in Zahri district, about 40 kilometres west of Kandahar City, national broadcaster Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) said.

The soldiers were riding in a Light Armoured Vehicle that hit an improvised explosive device on a road north of a Canadian forward operating base near Bazar-e Panjwaii, said Col. Christian Juneau.

The wounded received non-life threatening injuries.

These latest casualties bring the number of Canadians killed in Afghanistan to 73 soldiers and one diplomat since the mission began in 2002.
