Seven Royal Marines arrested in murder inquiry

Seven Royal Marines have been arrested on suspicion of murder, the Ministry of Defence has said.

In a statement it said the arrests by the Royal Military Police related to an incident in Afghanistan last year.

BBC defence correspondent Caroline Wyatt said it was the first time UK servicemen had been arrested on such charges during the conflict.
