As the last remaining Canadian troops return from Afghanistan, a ceremony is held to mark the official end of Canadian involvement in the country.
84 soldiers arrived in Ottowa, welcomed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper who said the troops have “brought to a close the longest active military engagement”, thanking all members of the Canadian Armed Forces as well as those who made it possible for them to serve. The ceremony, which was also attended by Rob Nicholson, Canada’s Defence Minister, saw Mr Harper set May 9th as a National Day of Honour to recognise military contributions in Afghanistan.
The Canadian flag at Nato headquarters has been lowered.
