Private Luke Worsley, 26, from Sydney, was killed by small arms fire early last Friday (23.11.07), in Oruzgan province — the third Australian lost in the fighting over the last two months. Australian forces are operating under the NATO command set up to protect the reconstruction drive in Afghanistan.
