  Black Watch soldier dies in Iraq
Updated 08 November 2004, 21.43
A Black Watch soldier has been killed in Iraq
A Black Watch soldier has been killed in Iraq and two more injured in an attack near their Camp Dogwood base.

A bomb near a road is thought to have been involved and a military spokesman said one of the other soldiers was "possibly seriously" injured.

It happened north of the UK battle group's base at Camp Dogwood, 20 miles (32km) from Baghdad.

On Sunday, two other Black Watch troops were injured by a suicide car bomb and three died in an attack on Thursday.

Two of the soldiers injured in the attack on Sunday have been flown to Germany to get medical treatment.


A Downing Street spokesman said on Monday night: "Our thoughts are with the Black Watch battle group and their families after this incident.

"As the prime minister said this afternoon, we salute their dedication, professionalism and sheer courage."
