Two British soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan  | read this item

Two UK soldiers were killed in Helmand, Afghanistan. One was from the 2nd Battalion The Rifles whereas the other one was from the 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment (Duke of Wellington’s). The soldier from the Warminster-based 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment was one of 125 extra troops deployed to Afghanistan after the UK suffered a record number of casualties last month.

They were killed while on a routine foot patrol near the town of Sangin, In Helmand province last Thursday. Their deaths bring the total number in Afghanistan since 2001 to 206. This is a very sad news specially to the relatives of the two British soldiers.

It is with deep regret that we report the deaths of two soldiers in Helmand Province, Lt Col Nick Richardson, spokesman for Task Force Helmand, said in an interview.

The said the deaths were not connected to Thursday’s presidential elections in Afghanistan.
