First female British soldier dies in Iraq
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

LONDON British officials say the body of a female soldier who died of a gunshot wound has been found a British military base in Basra, making her Britain's first female military fatality in Iraq.

Sergeant Denise Rose -- who was 34 -- was a member of the Royal Military Police's Special Investigation Branch. Her body was found on Sunday.

The ministry of defense is investigating, but Rose's death is not thought to have been the result of hostile action.

Rose's death brought to 70 the number of British service personnel who have died in the Iraq war since it began last year.
