The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has confirmed there has been an incident involving Australian soldiers in Afghanistan overnight, saying next of kin have been notified.
Defence Minister John Faulkner and chief of the defence force Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston will release more details at a 9am (AEST) media conference in Canberra.
The incident comes after Brisbane-based privates Grant Kirby and Tomas Dale died when an explosive hit their Bushmaster vehicle in Oruzgan Province on Friday.
A total of 20 Australian soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan - nine of them since June this year.
