MoD: Afghanistan threat 'continually assessed'

An MoD spokesman has said the "threat to all our service personnel is continually assessed" after an attack on the Camp Bastion military compound in Afghanistan killed two US Marines and wounded several more.

The threat to all our service personnel is continually assessed and all measures taken to mitigate it.

As we stated last week, the deployment of Captain Wales has been long planned and the threat to him and others around him thoroughly assessed.

We stated that any risk posed by his deployment, based on the capability, opportunity and intent of the insurgency, is continually reviewed.

As Isaf has confirmed, last night's attack was dealt with swiftly by Isaf personnel, including UK forces, and a number of insurgents were killed.

A clearance operation has been conducted and work to assess and investigate the incident continues.
