  5. Condolences to all directly affected, including those medical personnel involved who, on this occasion, were not able to work their usual miracles.
  6. From the MoD website:

    it is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm the death of a British soldier in Iraq, following a planned search and detention operation in Basra City earlier today, Friday 24 November 2006.
    Army. Opens in a new window.

    The soldier sustained gunshot wounds during the operation and was evacuated to a nearby military hospital. Despite the best possible medical care, the soldier later died from his injuries.

    The soldier was a member of the Parachute Regiment, on secondment to Headquarters Multinational Division South East, Iraq.

    Next of kin have been informed and have asked for a period of 24 hours in which to inform wider members of the family before details of his identity are released.

    The MoD is grateful for the media’s co-operation in respecting the family’s privacy at this difficult time

    RIP fella :(
  7. May he rest in peace and his loved ones find strength in his fortitude.
