Fox urges ban on Taliban video game
Defence Secretary Liam Fox has urged shops to ban a computer game where players can act as the Taliban and kill British troops.
Dr Fox said he was "disgusted" that Medal of Honor allowed people to recreate attacks on Nato forces.
An updated version of the popular game, due to be released in October, is based on the struggle between allied special forces and the Taliban - with players being allowed to choose which side they want to represent.
A clip on the YouTube website shows a Taliban soldier fighting in southern Helmand province, where UK forces are based.

I'll post my first pic later today.
Take up the challenge... if you've got what it takes.
And may the force be with you.
