  • BNA- 84 Taliban Militants Killed Throughout The Country

  • AA- Suicide car bombing kills 7 in southern Afghanistan
    A suicide car bombing targeting security forces in Afghanistan’s southern Helmand province claimed at least seven lives, officials said Wednesday. Umar Zwak, spokesman for the provincial governor, told Anadolu Agency the incident took place when militants rammed an explosive-laden car into a security forces’ vehicle near the police headquarters and the Rehmani Mosque in the provincial capital Lashkargah city.

British military casualties - Editorial policy

In the service of our country.

Eulogies for all personnel killed on UK operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere are posted as soon as they have been released by the UK Ministry of Defence. Each eulogy we publish for men down in operations brings a lump to the throat. We are losing the best of the best. Politicians must ensure that, when the newspaper cuttings have faded, their sacrifice has had some meaning, has helped bring about a good result. Anything else would be a waste for which they will be eternally condemned.

There is invariably at least a 24 hour gap between the official release of news of an event and the naming of the dead. This is to allow families to be informed and proper eulogoies to be produced. Occasionally families request no euologies or comment. We abide by guidance we receive on such sensitive matters. We regret that information on those who sacrifice almost as much through grave injury is seldom released by the MoD for operational reasons, and so we are unable to pay tribute.
