February 14 - At least three more British occupation soldiers were killed in a series of deadly attacks in Afghanistan's volatile Helmand province.

Reports on Monday confirmed that at least one of the soldiers was killed in a deadly improvised explosive device (IED) attack while on patrol.

Two more soldiers had previously been killed Monday when Taliban Mujahideen Resistance forces attacked US-led occupation troops outside Camp Bastion.

The news of all three casualties, along with their nationality, was confirmed by a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) Monday afternoon.

An estimated 44 foreign occupation troops have been killed in war-torn Afghanistan in the first two months of 2011, following last year's record-breaking number of more than 700 casualties, making 2010 the deadliest year for occupation troops since the US-led invasion of 2001.
