British soldiers could face jail time in US


Six British soldiers were arrested in New York last Friday after they attacked an off-duty officer outside of a bar in the Manhattan area.

Police reported a number of the soldiers punching the NYPD officer and the robbery of his mobile phone.

Corporal Joeli Raduva, Corporal Thomas Shute, Private Mosese Kuruala, Private Iliakini Raderua and Private Felite Vunisarati were in America as part of a battalion rugby tour.

Judge Tamiko Amaker ruled that bail should remain at $3,000 (2689,78) per soldier and that they would next appear in court on September 17.
