    It is with profound sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm the death of a British soldier from 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment in Afghanistan yesterday, Saturday 11 August 2007.

    Ministry of Defence
    The soldier was killed during an attack on his patrol base north east of Sangin, in Helmand Province. Five other soldiers received minor injuries in the incident.

    At 1320hrs local time the patrol base came under attack from small arms fire, rocket propelled grenades, and indirect fire. It was during this engagement that the British soldier was injured. An emergency response helicopter took him to the medical facility at Camp Bastion for treatment, but sadly the soldier did not survive.

    The soldier’s next of kin have been informed and have requested a period of grace before further details are released.
