* Three coalition soldiers – a British woman and two Americans – killed Wednesday
* British Lance Corporal Brodie Gillon, 26, a reserve, died in attack on Camp Taji
* The US retaliated by killing five Iraqi security forces and a civilian in air strikes
A barrage of rockets has hit an Iraqi military base housing US-led coalition troops for the second time this week, security officials said.
Three coalition service personnel – a British woman and two Americans – were killed in the first attack on Camp Taji on Wednesday.
It was the deadliest attack on coalition troops in Iraq since a late December rocket attack on an Iraqi base that killed a US contractor and set in motion a series of tit-for-tat attacks that brought Iraq to the brink of war.
In retaliation, the US launched a series of air strikes on militia bases across Iraq’s south, killing five Iraqi security forces and a civilian.
