Military strategy in Afghanistan 'will not change'

The head of the Armed Forces has insisted Britain's military strategy in Afghanistan will not change despite the deaths of six soldiers killed in the country this week. Five of the soldiers were based in Warminster.

They were killed in the deadliest single enemy attack on UK troops since the war began alongside a soldier from 1st Battalion The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment. General Sir David Richards vowed the country would "hold its nerve" and continue combat operations in the region until the end of 2014.
