Two more British soldiers killed in Afghanistan

As reported on the BBC last evening and in today's Times:

"Two British soldiers have been killed by roadside blasts while on foot patrol in Afghanistan.

The pair, from 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, serving as part of the 1 Coldstream Guards Battle Group, died after two explosions near Malgir, Helmand province, yesterday morning, the Ministry of Defence said.

Their families have been informed.

The deaths brought the number of British military fatalities since the campaign started in 2001 to 253."

  1. 253 dead Brits and hundreds injured in a wasteful adventure that's achieving nothing, but may go on for up to 15 years and still achieve nothing. The politicians must draw a line under it and bring our boys home now.
