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 :(
