It appears that it may have been hit by a US Patriot missile.
If so, very concerning, you expect this sort of thing in the heat of battle, but it seems this aircraft was returning from a mission, the Patriots being based in Kuwait.
Several things come to mind, a communications foul up, or the dangers of a heavily automated system like Patriot, or maybe the UK MoD's negligence of procuring a new IFF system coming home to roost.

A reporter in Kuwait City said that the Patriot crews were under big pressure because of their horrible rate against the Iraqi missiles: They took only 2 out of 16 down.
