About 30 ANA soldiers and their French mentors were engaged by opposing forces using small arms.

Thanks for the link in English. According to the last details, the TIC lasted over an hour and involved CAS provided by F-16s. The Captain who was WIA is still alive despite some rumours to the contrary.

Whatever differences I have had with Fantassin regarding the British-French relationship, I hope the bloke rests in peace. It is easy to forget we are fighting a common enemy in the interests of us all.
