The Canadian peacekeeper killed

Major Hess-von Kruedener was a member of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry – the same regiment that makes up the bulk of the force fighting in Afghanistan. The others killed were from China, Finland and Austria.

He has served with the UN in Lebanon since October, 2005. His wife Cynthia Hess-von Kruedener told the Kingston Whig-Standard that she hadn't heard from her husband since early Tuesday morning.
