Slovak soldiers serving in Afghanistan with the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit identified and then disabled explosives installed in a car that enemy forces intended to use during an attack on an allied military base in Kandahar, southern Afghanistan.
The attack took place on October 27 and lasted several hours. Two days later US Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker personally thanked the Slovak specialists. The deputy chief of the Slovak contingent in the ISAF mission, Milan Vanga, said that Crocker noted that the actions of the Slovak team had saved the lives of allied soldiers and local people.
