A former South African military medic was killed in Iraq when the car he was travelling in drove over an anti-tank mine.
Johan Terry, 33, was killed along with several British engineers in the southern Iraqi town of Basra while driving in a convoy on Sunday.
Terry, a staff sergeant at 7 Medical Battalion, is the 13th South African to have been killed in Iraq since January.
Terry's wife, Danthea, was too traumatised to talk.
A family friend said that Terry had been working in Iraq for the past seven months as a medic for a British company.
