Two British soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan. The soldiers served with The Royal Scots Borderers, 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (1 SCOTS), part of the 3 RIFLES Battle Group and were killed near Sangin, in Helmand province, yesterday evening.
The MoD has emphasised that the deaths of these two solders are not connected to Operation Moshtarak.
A total of 255 of our military have now fallen in this war. More lives lost, more families lives which will never be the same again and all in the name of 'fighting terrorism'. Such a tragedy.
