Two British soldiers have been killed by a roadside bomb as they travelled in a convoy in southern Iraq.
Iraqi police said the pair's armoured Land Rover was hit by the explosion about five miles east of Shaibah in British-patrolled Basra province.

They died from their injuries at about 0830 BST (1130 local time).

The Ministry of Defence in London confirmed the deaths but said it would not release any further details until their next of kin had been informed.

I hate it when this happens. My son-in-law is out there now and the daughter, wife and in-laws will be all scared stiff. Wife and daughter know better, the in-laws are different.

Why don't they leave it until the families know, before relaesing info??????

My thoughts are with the unfortunate families who, no doubt, know by now.

I agree but most of the time the news is broke first by the media hacks resulting in the MOD having to follow up by releasing an initial statement.

RIP guys.
