A British soldier has been killed and three others have been wounded in three separate incidents around Basra, a military spokesman in Iraq has said.
About 1,000 troops were involved in the fighting. The dead soldier was part of a Warrior vehicle patrol in the Tuninah district of the city.

Next of kin have yet to be informed, the spokesman said.

The operations are said to have seen some arrests. The Ministry of Defence said it was looking into the reports.

Three seperate incidents - coordinated or just a busy day? Either way, not good.
