Two British soldiers were shot dead in Afghanistan today by a man wearing the local Afghan police uniform.
The soldiers, from 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, were killed at a checkpoint in the south of Nahr-e Saraj district in Helmand province.
It happened at a checkpoint - south of Nahr-e Saraj in Helmand province. It is the latest case of what's known in the military as a "green on blue" death.
It was also revealed that a soldier from 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards was killed in the same area yesterday, when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb.
All their families have been told.
The soldier who died yesterday was killed when his vehicle hit an improvised explosive device.
Today's deaths bring the number of members of UK forces to have died since operations in Afghanistan began in October 2001 to 430.
The MoD said the deaths were unrelated to the attack at Camp Bastion on Friday in which two US Marines were killed.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for Friday night's attack, saying it was carried out because Prince Harry was on the base and in revenge for an anti-Islamic film.
