The soldier, a gunner in the 51 Squadron RAF Regiment, was on patrol around the airfield at the time of the blast shortly after midnight local time, the ministry said in a statement. Two other soldiers were lightly wounded.
The casualties were evacuated by helicopter to a medical facility at the airport, where the soldier was pronounced dead. The interpreter later died of his wounds. The defense ministry declined to say what caused the blast.
The names of the soldier and interpreter have not been released, although the ministry said the soldier's next of kin had been notified.
Most EU countries are allied with US-dominated NATO - a killing machine involved in smashing one sovereign state after another. It's responsible for vast destruction, millions of casualties, and appalling human misery from the rape of Yugoslavia and post-9/11 US-led wars of aggression - based on Big Lies and deception.
