A man who posted a Facebook message that said "all soldiers should die and go to hell" after six British soldiers were killed in Afghanistan was today spared jail.
Azhar Ahmed, 20, admitted posting the message two days after the deaths of the servicemen in March.
He was charged after the mother of one of the soldiers read the comments and was so upset she called the police.
Five of the soldiers were from the Warminster-based 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment.
