Iraq bombing: UK investigates reports of Briton’s death


LONDON – The Foreign Office is investigating reports that a British national has died in a suicide bombing in Iraq.
It said it was “aware of reports of the death of a British national in Iraq” and was “looking into them.”
Britain is to boost its military role in Iraq to help local forces in their efforts to halt the advance of Islamic State (IS) extremists.
And the United States is sending 1,500 more non-combat troops to Iraq to boost local forces fighting IS.
British military trainers will be sent within weeks to work at a US headquarters that has been established in the capital.
Large swathes of Syria and Iraq are currently under the control of IS extremists.
The UK launched its first air strikes against IS targets in Iraq on 30 September – four days after Parliament approved military action. (BBC)
