A military vehicle rolled over in Kosovo on Tuesday, killing one British soldier and injuring three others, police said.

The soldiers, who were not identified, were traveling in a military vehicle that rolled over around 1 a.m. (2300GMT) near a railway in the central Kosovo town of Glogovac, some 30 kilometers (20 miles) west of the province's capital Pristina, said Refki Morina, a spokesman for the Kosovo police force.

One of the injured was in serious condition, he said.

The soldiers were part of the 18,000-strong NATO-led peacekeeping force that has patrolled Kosovo since mid-1999 when an alliance air war ended a Serb crackdown on ethnic Albanians seeking independence.
