More UK soldiers die from suicides than fighting Afghan Taliban
London: A study has revealed that there have been more suicide cases among British soldiers in comparison to deaths while fighting the Afghanistan Taliban.
The study found out that the traumatic stress of the time spent in Afghanistan has taken toll on the lives of the British soldiers.
BBC reports that 21 serving soldiers killed themselves last year, along with 29 veterans.
According to the report, some of the soldiers` families claimed that the men did not get enough support from the army.
Meanwhile, the Army diagnosed many soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The number of soldiers with PTSD has more than doubled in the past three years among those who served in Afghanistan, according to MoD figures.
