NZ soldier, Kirifi Mila, dies on patrol accident

Kirifi Mila
New Zealand soldier Kirifi Mila has died after the Humvee he was in plunged 30 metres off a cliff in Bamiyan Province in Afghanistan.

Private Mila was the turret gunner and the top half his body would have been sticking out from the vehicle at the time of the incident.

The Defence Force has also confirmed three others were injured in the accident.

It is unclear what caused the Humvee to roll off the cliff, but the Defence Force is "100% sure" it was not an attack.
