A Royal Marine killed in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday may have been a victim of “friendly fire” from a US jet, it has been claimed.
Jonathan Wigley, 21, died as marines clashed with Taliban fighters in a fierce 10-hour battle on the outskirts of the town of Garmsir, in the southern Helmand province.
But today a fellow soldier said Marine Wigley, of the 45 Commando unit, was killed by an American A-10 tankbuster plane, called in to support the British during the battle after they encountered far tougher than expected resistance.
