KABUL: Three Nato troops killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan were British, officials said on Wednesday.
The three soldiers from the Royal Highland Fusiliers died on Tuesday when their vehicle was hit on a routine patrol in the district of Nahr-e Saraj, part of the southern province Helmand.
“Their deaths come as a great loss to all those serving in Task Force Helmand,” army spokesman Major Richard Morgan said in a statement from London.
The British defence ministry said that security in Helmand, a hotbed of the Taliban insurgency, was improving but that it remained a risky and dangerous environment for British troops.
The deaths were announced by Nato’s US-led International Security Assistance Force in Kabul on Tuesday without stating the nationalities of the victims, in line with coalition policy.
