Royal Engineers help to push the Taliban out of Loy Mandeh

Checkpoints built by the Royal Engineers have helped revive an area on the northern edge of Nad-e Ali. The bazaar in Loy Manday had been a thriving market until fighting forced shops to shut and buildings fell into disrepair. But troops from the nearby FOB WAHID have been pushing insurgents out of the area and new checkpoints have helped re-establish security. Improved safety means local Afghans are starting to use the bazaar again.
