  1. British soldier killed in Helmand
    Wed, 17 Dec 2008 22:23:06 GMT
    A British soldier has been shot in fighting in troubled Helmand province, the 6th fatality among British forces in the past week.

    “He received immediate medical care at the scene and was taken by helicopter to the military hospital at Camp Bastion for further treatment,” the UK Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

    The statement added that the soldier had died of injuries sustained during a fighting in the Nad-e-Ali district in southern Helmand Province on Wednesday.

    Another British soldier was killed in the same province on Monday, while four marines died there on Friday.

    The fatality brings the number of British killed in Afghanistan to 134 since the US-led forces invaded the country in 2001.

    Britain has stationed around 8,000 troops in Afghanistan as part of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).

    Recently, British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, said the UK planed to send 300 more troops to the country to help “a free and fair presidential election”.
