British forces have suffered their most deadly period of fighting in Afghanistan since the campaign began with 17 deaths in two months. The death of paratrooper Pte Peter Cowton on Tuesday brings the number of troops to 114.
The number of fatalities in the last two months far outstrips any other similar period since the British entered Afghanistan in 2001. In June and July last year, when commanders said the casualty rate for frontline units was similar to the Second World War, 10 soldiers were killed and when the Paras first entered Helmand in 2006 the force suffered 11 dead in July and August.
