A Namibian soldier was killed and at least seven others injured during a military offensive in the eastern rebel-held town of Moba, ‘The Namibian’ newspaper reported. The body of the soldier and those injured, all members of the Fifth Battalion of the Namibian Defence Force, were flown to the capital Windhoek at the weekend.
