    British Defence Secretary bans troops selling stories
    Apr 9 01:55 PM US/Eastern

    EXCERPT

    British Defence secretary announced Monday that military personnel have been banned from selling their stories to the media, after his department was heavily criticised for allowing 15 sailors held by Iran last month to accept payment for interviews.
