Defence Secretary Philip Hammond says an investigation into the deaths of three soldiers in Afghanistan is underway.
In a statement, he said: "We are determined to get to the bottom of exactly what happened yesterday at Checkpoint Kamparak Pul, and to pursue those who are responsible.”
I was saddened to hear of this cowardly act by a man wearing an Afghan uniform, which has taken the lives of three brave British soldiers. All of our thoughts are with the families of these men who have died in such tragic circumstances. They gave their lives protecting Britain’s national security, helping to make sure that Afghanistan never again becomes a haven for international terrorism.
He added that although yesterday's incident was 'deeply tragic', it would not 'derail the mission or distract us from the task in hand'.
The Chief of Staff for Task Force Helmand, Major Andy Cox, has paid tribute to the three soldiers killed in Afghanistan.

Lee was a pupil at Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi from 1996 to 2001. We remember him as a witty and popular student who was full of life. We are all shocked by his tragic death, but we know how much he enjoyed his work and how committed he was to the Army. We send our deepest sympathy and condolences to his family at this sad time.
