Three British soldiers have been killed and two others wounded by a bomb dropped by a US plane, the British Defence Ministry said Friday.
The ministry said the incident happened Thursday in the southern province of Helmand.
The US plane had apparently dropped a bomb meant for Taliban fighters, but struck the British soldiers instead.
With the latest casualties, it brought to 76 the number of British soldiers killed so far in Afghanistan.
