    British Marines in Afghanistan: two more fatalities have been reported

    Times Online and agencies
    Two Royal Marines have been killed in an explosion in southern Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence said today.

    The soldiers, serving with 40 Commando Royal Marines, were conducting a patrol near Kajaki, in Helmand Province, shortly before 5pm local time when their vehicle was caught in an explosion yesterday. Medical treatment was provided before both soldiers were taken to the field hospital at Camp Bastion but, despite the best efforts of the medical team, both soldiers died as a result of their wounds.

    A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: “It is with much sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that two soldiers serving with 40 Commando Royal Marines have been killed in an explosion in southern Afghanistan.
