Tobi Cohen recalls Kandahar IED incident

Tobi Cohen, a journalist with The Canadian Press, describes the IED incident she was involved in with Scott Deveau from the National Post in Kandahar this morning,

With little else to do on the agonizingly slow journey, we chatted. Two soldiers got out of the vehicle to inspect the road for possible IEDs, or improvised explosive devices. We were discussing which vehicles are best able to withstand the impact from an IED when — Kaboom! The bomb struck the front right side of our vehicle, spinning it around and flipping it onto its side, leaving a deep crater on the road. “Is everyone OK? Is everyone OK?” soldiers shouted as the smell of diesel and smoke filled the vehicle. link
