Two Australian soldiers in East Timor have been seriously injured after falling down a steep slope.
They were moving around their patrol position, about 60 kilometres south-west of Dili early Friday morning, when they fell.
The soldiers suffered head, facial, back and shoulder injuries and have been moved back to Australia for specialist medical treatment.
The exact circumstances of the incident are being investigated.
