British troops injured in Iraq/Afghanistan are 'victims of crime'

British troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan could be awarded millions of pounds in compensation.

The British Government has ruled that they are victims of crime, not war.

A series of test cases will allow 40 injured servicemen to receive up to STG€500,000 each because they were involved in terrorist attacks rather than battlefield combat.
