Bomb disposal pair clears Taliban IED factory
Two members of the Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Task Force (C-IED TF) have spent two full days making safe an IED factory found by British soldiers in the Nahr-e Saraj area of Helmand province.
The compound, uncovered by members of 1st Battalion The Rifles (1 RIFLES), contained enough components and equipment to make over 80 devices.
Captain Nick Welby-Everard Torbet, from 521 Squadron, 11 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Regiment, Royal Logistic Corps (RLC), and Corporal Ed Williams, from 22 Headquarters and Support Squadron, 101 Engineer Regiment (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), Corps of Royal Engineers (RE), were part of a four-man team called to search the compound, make safe any devices, and help the soldiers of 1 RIFLES collect any evidence the bomb makers may have left.
