British troops hailed for response to Kabul blast ‘carnage’

British troops have been praised for running towards the “carnage” caused by a suicide bombing, which took place as they tried to help Afghans flee the Taliban. Brigadier James Martin, commander of 16 Air Assault Brigade, said the response to the attack near Kabul airport was “one of the finest things I’ve seen”. His troops aided wounded Afghan civilians and gave support to their United States counterparts.
