Judge warns MoD on poor equipment (BBC News)
Sending British soldiers on patrol or into battle with defective equipment could breach their human rights, a High Court judge has ruled. [...] The decision was a legal defeat for Defence Secretary Des Browne.
He also had his attempt to ban coroners from using critical phrases such as "serious failure" rejected. [...]
Jocelyn Cockburn, Mrs Smith's solicitor, said the ruling meant British soldiers sent abroad would "have the same human rights as any other British citizens and must be properly equipped when sent into battle". (Quelle: BBC.co.uk)
