    "Unexplained" death at British army base

    The BBC reports on the body of a soldier being found at an army base in Berkshire:

    Thames Valley Police said the body was found by officers and that the death was being treated as "unexplained". A force spokeswoman said no further information was available but that an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death was under way.
    Is this soldier another victim of the British army's climate of fear, violence and sexual harrasment?
    Private Sean Benton was found dead in July 1995. He had five bullet wounds and an army rifle lay nearby. He told his parents he was sorry that he had failed as a soldier and let them down.
    Confidential army documents obtained by Panorama also reveal that there were five more suicide attempts at Deepcut between June and November 1995.
