A Canadian soldier uses an explosive detection kit to test the foot of a man for explosive residue outside of his home. Canadian soldiers of the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment, along with Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police, took part in a partnered dismounted patrol around the Panjwai'i District in Kandahar province Oct. 7. Ultimately, the priority of ISAF (International Security Assistance Forces) is to build up the ANA and ANP and hand over security to the Afghan security forces.
