A "rogue" Afghan policeman has shot dead five British servicemen after conducting a patrol with the troops in Helmand province.
He killed the soldiers, three from the Grenadier Guards and two from the Royal Military Police, during a debrief in the Nad-e'Ali district yesterday afternoon before fleeing.
He has yet to be found.

Need to get the majority of soldiers out of there asap. They now have a fraudulent president (so the entire 'aim' of creating democracy failed a long time ago), it's wasting a lot of money and lives. You don't need thousands of soldiers to secure an oil pipeline or poppies or whatever else it is the government really wants, and you will never kill every single person opposed to you and willing to do harm (the "taliban" are just a small group of these - impossible to root out).
