emotional Afghanistan. The inquiry was launched six months ago after Major Hasans worried colleagues alerted the authorities to his anti- American outbursts. Military officials at the Fort Hood base refused to rule out the possibility some casualties may have been victims of friendly fire, shot by authorities during the massacre. Some victims were women. Soldier Amber Bahr, 19, was shot in the abdomen and is now in a stable condition. Her mother Lisa Pfund said: We were on the phone. She said, Hi, Mommy, how you doing? All of a sudden, she said, I gotta go. The next call Ms Pfund received was from an emergency room doctor. Another of the injured, 21-year-old Pte Keara Bono, called her husband to say: They shot me. And Im still here in this country. He heard shots and shouting, then the line went dead. She was shot in the back.

In a bid to shore up backing for the war among voters and within Labour, the Prime Minister set out five key tests for the Kabul government to keep UK support. They were: an international anti-corruption tsar; 134,000 more Afghan troops; more economic development; reconciliation to include former insurgents, and better relations with Pakistan.

Nausheen Chant, who married Darren Chant, 40, in August, said she was devas- tated by his death and would never allow him to be forgotten. Due to give birth in three months, the 30-year-old said: Our unborn son will never meet his father. But he will know him through his legacy. In uniform or out, his incomparable courage and selflessness humbled all those who knew and loved him. Warrant Officer Chants best friend, Michael Cripps, revealed today how the soldier had feared he might never see his son. Mr Cripps, said: He was a career soldier who just got on with what he had to do. But even he was nervous, which is the first time I have seen him like that. He said he could not wait to get home. He had found out his wife was expecting a little boy and he said it was something to look forward to, fingers crossed. Walthamstow-born Regimental Sergeant Major Chant and his colleagues died when a police officer named as Gulbuddin opened fire with a machinegun as the troops drank tea on Tuesday. British special forces are now hunting the gunman. The bodies of the five men, who had been training members of the Afghan police, are expected to be repatriated next Tuesday. Father-of-three Mr Chant was due to be told he was being promoted to captain on the day he died. He had trained Princes William and Harry at Sandhurst and was set to go back to the military a c a d e m y o n h i s r e t u r n f r o m Afghanistan. He met British-born Nausheen, a non- practising Muslim whose parents were born in Pakistan, when she was working as a clerk at Sandhurst. The couple married in the Guards Chapel at Wellington Barracks in London. Mr Chants mother Elizabeth, 59, today reignited the row over equipment shortages for British troops when she revealed that Nausheen, his second wife, had to send him a duvet because he was not given adequate bedding to cope with the cold Afghan nights. My son said Afghanistan was a living hell, said Mrs Chant. They need more of every- thing -- equipment, troops, rifles, clothes and boots which fit.
