Jesper Lindblom
28-year old Swedish soldier Jesper Lindblom was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan on 26th November 2005. Three other Swedish soldiers were wounded by the blast, one of them is still in critical condition.
Lindblom was a Marine Ranger when he joined the secretive elite unit Särskilda skyddsgruppen (SSG) in 1999.

Sweden currently has some 100 soldiers in Afghanistan whose job is to maintain peace, such as it is, and another 100 soldiers will reinforce the unit next spring.
