The Danish army says 11 of its soldiers and two local interpreters have been injured as insurgents attacked their patrol base in southern Afghanistan.

The Army Operational Command says none of them received life-threatening injuries, but it could not immediately offer more details on their condition Wednesday.

The attack occurred late Tuesday, just before a sand storm swept across Helmand province's Gereshk district, leading to some delays in evacuating the injured.

Denmark has lost 29 soldiers in Afghanistan since it joined the U.S.-led coalition in 2002.

It has 700 troops serving in the NATO-led force in Afghanistan. Most are based in the volatile southern Helmand province.
