(about 6 hours later)
A British soldier has died after he was wounded during a routine patrol in southern Iraq.
The Ministry of Defence said the serviceman, who has not been named, was injured in the al-Ashar district of Basra at about 1400 BST.
A second soldier was also wounded in the incident but was recovering in hospital, a military spokesman said.
This latest death comes a day after another UK soldier died after being wounded on patrol in the same area.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the soldier in the most recent incident was taken to Basra Palace for treatment before being flown by helicopter to a field hospital at Basra Air Station.
An MoD spokesman said his family have not been informed yet.
