British PM visits Afghanistan; promises more troops
Kabul: Britain`s Prime Minister has paid a
surprise visit to British troops in southern Afghanistan.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown flew today to the city of
Lashkar Gah, where British troops have been waging a tough
fight against Taliban insurgents.
Brown promised British troops more help to overcome
the threat of Taliban roadside bombs that have killed and
wounded many British soldiers this summer.
A sharp rise in casualties has undercut support for
the war among the British public and sharp criticism that the
government has not given the soldiers enough helicopters and
other support to cope with the rising insurgency.
