    The death on Monday afternoon brings the total number of UK troops killed while serving in Afghanistan since 2001 to 133.
    Four Royal Marines were killed last week in southern Afghanistan in two separate explosions.
    The soldier, who has not been named yet, was at a Forward Operating Base in the Gereshk area of Helmand Province when he was wounded.
    He received immediate medical treatment and was taken by helicopter to a military hospital in Kandahar but died from his injuries.
