Update: US Soldiers Suffer Chemical Weapons-Like Reaction After Taliban Attack
On Friday I reported here that five US troops serving in Afghanistan fell ill after a suspected chemical weapons attack. One soldier was very sick. They were having trouble breathing.
Here is the latest on the attack on a US base in Afghanistan:
The five soldiers are doing better. Their humvee came under mortar attack at a base in Afghanistan. At some point the men in the vehicle were exposed to something that so effected their breathing that they all had to be put on life support. The soldiers were then transported to Germany. It appears that all of the men will recover.
I’ll update this report as I get more information.
