A member of the Royal Army Medical Corps has been killed in a rocket attack on a base in Iraq.
An American soldier and contractor also died in the attack on the Taji military camp, north of Baghdad, according to US military sources. At least 12 people were injured.
The victims’ names have yet to be released, although the Ministry of Defence says the British soldier’s family has been informed. No-one has claimed responsibility for the attack.
“We will continue to liaise with our international partners to fully understand the details of this abhorrent attack,” says Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
