Death of Dutch Soldiers in Afghanistan Due to Inferior Armed Vehicles


The Liberal Party has asked Minister of Defense, Van Middelkoop, for clarification about the quality of armored vehicles used by the Dutch Military in Afghanistan. Soldiers serving there have told the daily De Telegraaf that the deaths of two Dutch soldiers last Saturday could probably have been prevented if the military had replaced the light and vulnerable Viking vehicles with Bushmaster vehicles which can resist roadside bombs. The soldiers call the Vikings “death coffins on caterpillar tracks”.
