Front Line Afghanistan

If you missed this report by Mark Urban on BBC newsnight on Tuesday 29th April it should be on their web site later today. Further reports will be shown in the next two weeks.


Tonight a Newsnight exclusive - the inside story of the British mission in Musa Qala. The battle for control of the Afghan town has come to epitomise the trial between the British Army and its Taliban enemy in Helmand province. Our diplomatic editor Mark Urban spent nine days with British troops trying to win over suspicious locals in a town where there is still a lot of support for the Taliban.
Great report that. It was good to see my lad is fine (be it on the TV), and doing a great job.

back to lurking for me now. Faugh-a-ballagh
