Soldiers’ shooting deaths inquest today
10:30am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
INQUESTS into the deaths of two soldiers killed in Afghanistan will be held in Oxford today.
Sergeant Gareth Thursby, 29, and Private Thomas Wroe, 18, both of 3rd Battalion, the Yorkshire Regiment, were killed while on duty on September 15 last year.
They died after being shot by a rogue Afghan policeman at Checkpoint Tora in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand Province.
The inquests will be held at County Hall, in New Road, from 10am.
Soldiers’ inquests are often held in Oxfordshire after their bodies are repatriated via RAF Brize Norton.
