IED Attack on British Patrol

#1
No casualties. If you look at the vehicles in the photo you can see why.


A British soldier gestures towards photographers to stay away from the scene of a bomb attack east of Basra, 550 km (340 miles) south of Baghdad, December 21, 2007. A suspected roadside bomb exploded next to a British military armoured vehicle east of Basra International Airport, where British forces in Iraq are based, but there were no casualties from the blast, a British military official said.

Soldier I think not, look at his shoulder - probably also explains the CWS on during the day - sloppy.

Looks like a particular, particular unit got targeted. More than likely because they are the least popular with the IED emplacement dudes.

They have been the bane of the IED nuts for some time, and have saved an awful lot of lives.
