Several British troops are believed to have been injured in two near-simultaneous attacks which today struck in Basra today, The Times understands.

One incident is said to have involved a roadside bomb striking a British convoy south of Basra, causing a number of casualties according to sources.

Another attack saw a mortar or rocket land on the Basra Palace complex, which is the base for several hundred British troops as well housing the British Consulate General and a US consulate.

A Times reporter in Basra witnessed a medical helicopter flying from the city centre to Basra airport, where the main military hospital is based. Usually, military helicopters do not fly in Basra in daylight as it is too dangerous – a rule which is only broken in emergency situations.

More details soon

RIP Mate, my thoughts and prayers, as ever, to His family and friends.


Wishing a very speedy recovery to the wounded
 
Just looked on sky news and it says:
American helicopters have mistakenly launched a deadly attack on Kurdish positions in Northern Iraq, reports have said.
At least five police officers were killed.
American officials said the helicopter crews believed they had been targeting Al Qaeda guerrillas.

it might be worth having a read on the website as the story goes on....
hope this helps.
