British troops are now suffering a higher wounded casualty rate in Afghanistan than in Iraq, according to new official figures.

The increase comes after Britain started to send troops to Afghanistan in a combat role in the southern province of Helmand from the beginning of 2007.

In a written parliamentary reply published Tuesday, Defence Minister Baroness Taylor revealed that in the 23 months up until November 2007, 307 British military personnel were admitted to medical facilities in Afghanistan having being wounded in action.
