British tabloids are not mincing their words, following the death of five British troops, reportedly killed by a rogue Afghan policeman.

 “Find the bastard and kill him”, says The Daily Star. According to the paper, the men were “slaughtered as they drank tea at a check point” in the Helmand Province.

We also look at the Daily Telegraph and the Independent. The latter interviewed a senior British soldier, who says he was not surprised when he heard the news. “Most of the Afghan Police are corrupt and stoned on opium”, he claims.
