3 UK military personnel killed in Afghanistan

Britain's military says that a soldier and a marine have died in separate attacks in Afghanistan, while an airman has been killed in a road accident.
The Ministry of Defense says that the marine from 40 Commando Royal Marines was killed while on patrol in Sangin, in southern Afghanistan, late Friday.
The same day, an airman with the Royal Air Force Regiment was killed in an accident near Camp Bastion in Helmand, also in southern Afghanistan.
The soldier from Royal Dragoon Guards was killed in an explosion in the Nahr-e Saraj District of Helmand on Saturday morning.
The deaths bring to 323 the number of British military personnel who have been killed in Afghanistan since the start of operations there in late 2001.
