The situation in Logar worse than you can say

(B2)The Shank military base in eastern Afghanistan in Logar province is attacked almost every week, the commander of the 2nd contingent of the Czech Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) said on his return home after six months there. He also said he was very satisfied, according to my Czech colleagues at CTK, that the 200 men they commanded had all returned home. 13 of the soldiers were, however, injured. The Shank base has been the target of several missile attacks.
