  1. Clegg voices Afghan campaign fear

    Mr Clegg said he would be asking about how to deal with the opium trade
    Failure in Afghanistan would be "devastating" while the Nato mission was "hanging in the balance", Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has said on a visit.

    Speaking during his first trip there, Mr Clegg warned that without lasting peace and stability Afghanistan could revert to a "pariah state".

    "The consequences of failure would be devastating," he said.

    Mr Clegg is spending two days visiting British troops and holding talks with Afghan leaders.

    "Afghanistan is the most important conflict of our generation," he said.
