Camp Bastion

Asked what steps had been taken to find out how the perimeter of Camp Bastion was breached, the PMS said that there would be an investigation of the incident. It was important to point out that incidents such as this involved isolated, rogue elements of the Afghan national security forces and that tens of thousands of ISAF soldiers worked alongside Afghan soldiers without incident every day. Bastion was very well protected, but the incident would be assessed carefully.

Asked whether there was going to be a step up in the vetting level of Afghan forces, the PMS said there has already been changes to the way we vetted recruits.
