Soldiers killed by Afghan sergeant at gate
Two soldiers were gunned down by a rogue Afghan soldier with a "personal grievance" after a row at the gates of their base, an inquest has heard.
Sgt Luke Taylor, 33, from Bournemouth, and Burnley-born L/Cpl Michael Foley, 25, were shot dead at British forces' HQ in Helmand last March.
Afghan troops had been turned away prompting an angry reaction.
L/Cpl Foley was shot in the head and neck as he opened the gate and Sgt Taylor died in the ensuing fire fight.
Duncan Kennedy reports.
