    British soldiers - AWOL figures treble since Iraq invasion

    According to this article, from today's Independent, the number of British soldiers going AWOL has trebled since the attack on Iraq:

    The Independent on Sunday can reveal that last year more than 380 soldiers went absent without leave and have since failed to return to duty - marking a dramatic increase since the invasion of Iraq three years ago.

    Military lawyers and campaigners said that these figures suggested significant levels of disaffection in the ranks over the legality of the occupation, and growing discontent about the coalition's failure to defeat the Iraqi insurgency.
