  1. Home-made bomb kills British soldier

    AFGHANISTAN: A British marine was killed on Sunday when he triggered a home-made bomb while searching a compound in the Nad-e Ali district of Helmand Province, the Ministry of Defence has announced.

    Task Force Helmand spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Tim Purbrick said: “The Royal Marine was involved in an operation which was investigating suspected insurgent activity in a number of compounds in the Loy Mandeh Wadi area.”

    The death brings to 365 the number of British troops killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in October 2001.

    The marine was the 17th to die this year.
