Rocket attack targets Afghan airbase
Insurgents mounted a rocket attack on an Afghanistan airfield which is currently home to more than 100 Scottish servicemen and women yesterday.
The attack happened around noon local time as the Press and Journal was at Kandahar on a visit to Moray-based 617 squadron.
The Tornado GR4 air crews and their engineering and support teams from RAF Lossiemouth are stationed at the airbase in the south of the country until July.
