Two British soldiers were wounded when a roadside bomb hit their convoy near the southern Iraqi city of Basra on Monday, a British military spokesman said.

Major Charlie Burbridge said the two soldiers had been evacuated after the attack around 15 km (nine miles) north of Basra. No more details were immediately available.

Britain has some 7,000 troops in mainly Shi'ite southern Iraq, which is much calmer than central and northern Iraq.
