British Troops Retreat From Battle With Taliban
One Royal Marine was killed and a second wounded during the battle, the UK Helmand Task Force (UKTF) reported.
In other news from Afghanistan, a report from the German military, the Bundeswehr, warns that the Taliban is approaching Kabul and that attacks on the capital city are likely to increase. Security in nearby districts is already deteriorating.
So much for all of the bravado from Canadian authorities who continue to tell us that progress is being made in Afghanistan.
