PRIME Minister David Cameron has paid tribute to three British soldiers who were shot dead by a gunman wearing an Afghan police uniform.
The soldiers, members of an Afghan Police Advisory Team, were leaving a shura – or meeting of elders – at Checkpoint Kamparack Pul in Nahr-e Saraj, Helmand Province, when they were shot on Sunday.
