Gulf war compensation bid fails

A legal battle by Gulf war veterans who claim they were made ill by the conflict is set to collapse.
The veterans' own solicitors say that, despite a publicly funded probe, they cannot uncover enough evidence that "Gulf war syndrome" exists.

Their finding is likely to mean that legal aid is withdrawn from the eight-year bid for compensation.

The National Gulf Veterans' and Families Association says there remains a case to answer, and plans an appeal.

Without legal aid, however, there is no way that the case can be pursued on behalf of more than 2,000 veterans.
