Troops 'get on with their job in Afghanistan'


Ten Nato soldiers were killed in separate attacks in Afghanistan yesterday. That makes it the deadliest day for foreign forces there in months.

Squadron Corporal Major Mick Flynn shares his experiences from his service in the country. He says: "when you're out there, you're already tuned to the fact that you're probably gonna suffer casualties," so when it actually happens, "the soldiers have already accepted it" and they get on with their job.
