Kabul - An Italian military, the First Corporal Roberto Marchini, died in Afghanistan after the explosion of a bomb he was trying to defuse. The incident happened at about 3 km west from the "Fob Lavaredo", the advanced base of the Italian contingent in Bakwa district, Farah province. Ten days after the death of Gaetano Tuccillo Italy pays a new death toll in Afghanistan. Marchini was a military of the Eighth Regiment FOLGORE.

While he was ahead of his convoy on a Bakwa road, noticed an IED on the roadside. He discovered that there were three IED! While he was defusing them, a fourth hidden IED, triggered probably from a mobile phone, wiped out Roberto... It was an infamous trap...
