TWO Australian soldiers have been wounded in Afghanistan after the vehicle they were travelling in was struck by an improvised explosive device.

The Defence Force says the incident occurred yesterday in Uruzgan province during a troop transfer between locations.

The soldiers suffered minor wounds in the blast.

They were evacuated by helicopter to a medical facility at Tarin Kot where they are in a satisfactory condition.

The acting deputy commander of joint operations, Commodore Michael Noonan, says the response to the detonation by the soldiers in the convoy highlights the effectiveness of their preparation for the deployment.
