Troops' mental health in spotlight

US shooting raises doubts over psychological well-being of army staff.

    After an army psychiatrist killed 13 people at a US military base in Texas, concerns are being raised about the mental health of the military staff.

    Families of soldiers at the Fort Hood base say Thursday's shootings are just a symptom of a much wider and increasingly urgent problem.

    There have been dozens of suicides at the facility in recent years.
