A Britain soldier wounded by a bomb in Afghanistan has died in a hospital in England, bringing to 364 the number of UK troops killed in war-torn Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001.
According to Britain's military, the soldier hurt Monday clearing roadside bombs in Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand Province, Associated Press reported.
As casualties have risen in Afghanistan over the past few months, public opinion has begun turning against the war in the United States and other countries.
In 2010, as many as 711 foreign troops lost their lives in Afghanistan -- an average of two a day -- which is by far greater than the previous record annual toll of 521, marked in 2009.
Despite the presence of about 150,000 foreign troops in Afghanistan, insecurity is on the rise across the country since the US-led war began there in 2001.
