An explosion in southern Afghanistan killed a British journalist, a U.S. Marine and an Afghan soldier, Britain's military said on Sunday.

The Sunday Mirror's Rupert Hamer and photographer Philip Coburn were accompanying a U.S. Marine patrol in southern Afghanistan when the vehicle they were traveling in was hit by a makeshift bomb. Coburn and four Marines were seriously wounded in the blast, the military said.

The military did not say exactly when the incident occurred. An e-mail seeking clarification was not immediately returned Sunday.
