US Government pays £1.3m to injured foreign soldier

A
former Special Air Service sergeant has received £1.3m in compensation from the
United States Government.

According
to The Sunday Telegraph, the man’s military career was finished after he was
crushed by an American helicopter in Afghanistan.

The
newspaper said it is thought to be the first time the US
has paid damages to a foreign soldier injured working alongside its troops.

The
move has raised hopes among other soldiers injured by ‘friendly-fire’ and the
families of those killed.
