MoD cannot confirm cause of deaths in Afghanistan

An initial investigation into the deaths of a female Army medic and a Royal Marine in Afghanistan has ruled out friendly fire from British or American forces as the cause.

But the Ministry of Defence says it still cannot confirm if an off-duty Afghan policeman nearby fired the shots.

Corporal Channing Day was killed alongside Corporal David O'Connor on Wednesday.
