Funeral service for Comber soldier takes place

The funeral of Corporal Channing Day, who was killed last month in Afghanistan, has taken place in Comber, County Down.

Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson was among the mourners. Mr Robinson had earlier attended the remembrance service for the 1987 Enniskillen bombing.

Corporal Day was killed alongside Corporal David O'Connor, of 40 Commando, during a fire fight in Afghanistan's Helmand Province last month.

An Afghan man, thought to be an off-duty policeman, also died.
