Three Black Watch soldiers have been killed and eight injured in a suicide attack in Iraq.

A vehicle was detonated at a Black Watch checkpoint, followed by mortar fire at around 1300 local time, Armed Forces Minister Adam Ingram said.

An Iraqi translator also died. Six of the injured are already back at base.

The 850-strong force has been attacked repeatedly since it arrived at Camp Dogwood, 20 miles from Baghdad, on Friday, after a request from the US.

The latest attack brings to 73 the number of UK military personnel deaths in Iraq.

The remaining two injured soldiers are expected to be released from hospital on Friday.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said on Thursday night the next of kin of all three soldiers had been informed but the names of the dead men would not be released until Friday.

You know the bomb attacks are doing a lot of damage in Iraq, I still wonder if the explosives used are from the stock pile that US lost.

Yet more blood on Tony Blair's hands.

Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood
Clean from my hand? No, this my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas in incarnadine,
Making the green one red.

MacBeth, Act II Scene II
