SAS medevac on streets of Kabul

[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] American Black Hawk Helicopters swoop in to a roundabout in western Kabul to collect a New Zealand SAS soldier, Corporal Doug Grant, mortally wounded during a seven hour gunbattle to retake control of the British Council building, Aug 19, 2011. Eyewitnesses said a suicide bomber breached the perimeter of the compound at around 5.30am, on the day Afghanistan marks its independence from colonial rule. A series of explosions, bursts of fire and single shots were heard throughout the day. French. American, New Zealand and British forces all responded to the attack, despite handing responsibility to Afghan forces earlier this year.
