Idoia Rodríguez Buján was killed this morning after a high-explosive mine exploded in Shindand (south of the Afghan province at Herat, see map below), while they were giving assistance to an Italian convoy. She is the first Spanish woman killed in foreign military missions. She was born in Friol, Lugo and belonged to the Light Aerotransported Brigade placed in Figueirido. Her father Constantino Rodríguez has said that no one could imagine the pain, as she was an only child.
Everything happened at 12:00 in the morning (Spanish hour) where they were travelling in an armoured millitary ambulance as shown below:
In the attack another two army men were hurt: César Muñoz Pantoja and Jorge Riaño del Río.
All of them will be flown back to Spain tomorrow.
