Tragedy

British Prime Minister David Cameron has just held a press conference, in which he has given the latest information on the death of the British aid worker Linda Norgrove. She was killed when US forces were trying to rescue her from the hands of extremists in the east of Afghanistan. Initially, it was suggested that the captors had detonated a suicide bombvest near her. However, Mr Cameron has now said that Linda may have been killed by a grenade used by the US forces. This information was relayed to the PM by the General Portraeus who is in overall command of NATO forces in Afghanistan. Ms Norgrove's parents has been informed of the latest insight by Mr Cameron.

I can only offer my sympathies to the Norgrove family and the community in Uig and further afield across Lewis on their sad loss, and wish them every strength in coming to terms with the death of Linda.

  2. 'Friendly Fire' from US forces has caused the death of British people serving their country too often.
    When will the government of this country stand firm on the island that gives it the right to govern her children?

    When will this government stand for truth, justice and honour.

    Our friends across the pond seem to have lost truth and honour in their search for justice.
