A British soldier has been killed in a traffic accident in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence has said.
Five British troops have died in Afghanistan in August
The soldier was serving with the Royal Logistic Corps in Kabul and is the fifth UK soldier to die this month.
The death brings the number of British soldiers killed in Afghanistan to 18, after Private Andrew Cutts was killed by Taleban gunfire three days ago.
Of those killed, six died because of illness, accident, or injuries which were not caused by combat.
The ministry said the soldier was killed in Camp Souter, and there was "no insurgent involvement".
No other soldiers or civilians were injured in the accident.
"The next of kin have been informed, and they have requested a period of time to inform friends and family before his name is made public," the MoD said.
