  1. UK marine killed in Afghan clash

    A British Royal Marine has been killed and another wounded in a battle with the Taleban in southern Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence has said.
    British troops attacked a Taleban-held valley but retreated after a 10-hour battle, the UK Helmand Task Force said.

    They said the operation aimed to dislodge Taleban forces responsible for attacks on the village of Garmser.

    Both marines were airlifted to a hospital in Camp Bastion, but one died from his wounds.
