Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown today expressed great sadness at the deaths of three Australian soldiers and a local interpreter in Afghanistan and extended his hopes for a speedy as possible recovery to the seven defence force personnel who were wounded.

"The Greens join all Australians in offering condolences to their family and friends, and comrades in Afghanistan, as they deal with this terrible tragedy. They will all be remembered in Australia's archives for their courage and commitment to our nation," Senator Brown said in Hobart.

Thirty-two Australian soldiers have now lost their lives while serving in Afghanistan.

"Greens call again for Australia's defence force personnel to be brought home to Australia, without delay," Senator Brown said.
