Two Gurkha soldiers, shot dead by a rogue Afghan policeman, have been named.

Soldiers from the final brigade to head to Afghanistan have been training in Wiltshire. 4000 troops are heading to Camp Bastion for the last time, bringing to an end Britain's 13 year involvement in the conflict. More than 400 sevicemen and women have died since operations began.
ITV Meridian spoke to Armed Forces Minister, Mark Francois MP.
Family and friends have been paying tribute, today, to the five servicemen killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. They were, they said, dedicated, professional, full of life. Four of the men - fathers and husbands - were based at RAF Odiham in Hampshire.
The Ministry of Defence says the crash was a "tragic accident" - the worst involving a British helicopter in Afghanistan since the campaign began in 2001.
The Lynx helicopter came down during routine training in southern Afghanistan - in the Takhta Pul district close to Kandahar Airfield.
Defence experts have denied claims by the Taliban that they shot it down - and believe the crash was caused by a technical problem. Richard Slee reports.
Military staff were surprised when an Afghan fighting bird swooped by their Helmand headquarters.
As officers continued with the ongoing mammoth task of returning kit from Camp Bastion, a lost partridge found itself inside the large building in Britain’s desert base.
The distinctively-coloured birds, known as Chukar partridges in central Asia, have existed for centuries and were bred in the past to fight in several regions of Afghanistan.
But on this occasion one merely perched on the rafters at Joint Force Support (Afghanistan), where staff are overseeing the return of thousands of items of kit and people to the UK.
Headquarters Sergeant Major, Warrant Officer 2 Stuart Evans, cajoled the flyer to a safe area outside the main building, where it enjoyed a bite to eat before flying off.
WO Evans, from Wickham, Hampshire, said: “This is a busy headquarters working on a major task, so we’re usually focused on the detail of that.
“It simply strolled in, but attempts to usher it outside made it head for the roof space. It was certainly a welcome distraction and talking point as it moved around the HQ.”
Royal Navy sailors on board the Portsmouth based warship HMS Westminster have been enjoying a traditional Christmas dinner at sea.

Troops from the Meridian region serving in Afghanistan this Christmas have been sending their special messages to loved ones back home.
It comes as the Prime Minister David Cameron reiterated his pledge to pull soldiers out of the country by the end of 2014.
The troops included in this Christmas message are:
Sapper Ben Msichilli from Maidstone, Lance Corporal Nicola Thompson from Bournemouth, Air Trooper Leo Domeisen from Bournemouth, Corporal Matthew Rogerson from Reading and Signaller Tom Page from Hastings.
Corporal Andrew Garthwaite, who lost his arm whilst serving in Afghanistan, has become the first person in the UK to receive a mind-controlled prosthetic limb.
Andrew has shown off his prosthetic, which was fully funded by the Ministry of Defence, to his peers during his visit to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre in Headley Court.
Corporal Garthwaite was injured by a rocket propelled grenade on operations in 2010.
But after 18 months of world class rehabilitation, he is now able to control movement of his prosthetic arm with his mind, by focusing his thoughts on the nerves connected to muscles in his chest.
