LONDON: A suicide car bomb killed a British member of the international coalition in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday, authorities said. It was the second death this month of a member in the Nato-led coalition.
Britain’s Ministry of Defense said the soldier from 3rd Battalion, The Mercian Regiment was killed in the attack while on patrol in the area of Kamparak, east of Lashkar Gah.
The defense ministry did not name the soldier but said next of kin have been informed.
According to an Associated Press count, 136 Nato troops have died so far this year in Afghanistan. Of that figure, 106 were American military personnel.
Responsibility for the country’s security has been turned over to the Afghan National Security Forces, but Nato troops routinely aid their Afghan allies when they come under heavy attack from insurgents.
