Sangin 'on verge of falling back into Afghan Taliban hands' - BBC News:
Almost a quarter of British military personnel killed during the UK's combat mission in Afghanistan died defending Sangin.
There were reports in December last year that the district was almost entirely in Taliban hands but since then the Afghan government has sent in reinforcements.
Government officials have repeatedly asserted that, despite the continuing Taliban assault, Sangin is secure. The commander, however, paints a very different picture.
