New Zealand's first combat death in Afghanistan is not a reason to withdraw our troops from the country, Prime Minister John Key says.

The Defence Force announced this morning that a New Zealand soldier serving with the New Zealand Provincial Reconstruction Team
had been killed during a routine patrol in Bamyan Province.

Two other soldiers and an interpreter were injured.
