American general to take command of British troops in Helmand province

American general to take command of British troops in Helmand province 01 Jun 2010 An American general will today take over command of all British forces in Helmand province in a symbolic move that underlines Britain’s diminished role in southern Afghanistan. The handover may also signal the beginning of the end of the British mission in Helmand -- where the majority of the 289 British deaths in Afghanistan have occurred -- as 20,000 US Marines exercise increasing authority across the south.
