2 stable, 6 back on duty and 1 coming back to the uk.
BBC Radio are saying an Apache was involved.
No doubt the Mods will be looking to close this thread later this evening pending the enquiry, so please all lets keep it to the reported facts for now
Probably not good to be posting this on here until official channels have informed families of those involved......
Nine British troops have been injured in a "friendly fire" incident in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence confirmed.
A British Apache helicopter opened fire on troops on patrol from 2 Para.
Six of the injured have returned to duty and two are stable and under observation in the field hospital at Camp Bastion.
One soldier is on the way back to the UK. Next of kin have been informed, the MoD said
As it's already on the BBC it would be unlikely if that hadn't already occurred.
