New Zealand Defence Forces Honor Their Fallen with Haka

Maori war dance in the honor of three killed soldiers.

The bodies of three New Zealand soldiers killed in Afghanistan were welcomed home with a giant haka in Christchurch on August 23.

The tribute to Corporal Luke Tamatea, Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker and Private Richard Harris was performed by approximately 200 military personnel.

The three soldiers died earlier this month when their vehicle was hit by a huge roadside bomb in north-east Bamyan Province.

New Zealand has suffered a total of 10 combat deaths in Afghanistan
