LONDON - Three British soldiers were killed in Afghanistan on Tuesday when their vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) in London said on Wednesday.

The attack took place during a routine patrol in Nahr-e Saraj district, in Helmand Province. The soldiers received immediate medical care and were evacuated by air to the Military Hospital at Camp Bastion but could not be saved.

The Taliban launched its spring offensive on Sunday, saying it would target foreign military bases and diplomatic areas.
