    LONDON (Reuters) - One British soldier has been killed and two others injured in a bomb attack against British vehicles around the southern Iraqi city of Basra, the Ministry of Defence says.

    "I am afraid I can confirm one fatality and two others injured -- one seriously," a spokesman told Reuters on Monday. "It was an improvised explosive device. It happened early this morning. Next of kin are being informed. I have no further details."
