The names of 120 servicemen and women who died serving in Afghanistan were read out at a protest in central London to mark the 10th anniversary of the war.

Hundreds of people attended the Stop the War Coalition demonstration in Trafalgar Square, led by a former soldier who refused to fight and a 106-year-old peace activist.

Ten dozen balloons were released into the air after protesters heard the names of the dead listed – one for each month since the war started.
