Iraq damages cases: Supreme Court judges to rule

Supreme Court judges will rule later on whether relatives of soldiers killed in Iraq can sue the government for damages under the Human Rights Act.

The case was brought by relatives of three men killed by roadside bombs while in Snatch Land Rovers in Iraq.

Currently British servicemen and women abroad are protected by the Human Rights Act if they are within a British base.
