'Medal of Honor' game sparks anger

UK defence minister outraged over gamers taking on the role of Taliban fighters.



    A new US video game in which the player can take on the role of a Taliban fighter and kill American and British soldiers has caused outrage in the UK.

    The country's defence minister says it is "tasteless" and "shocking" and has called for the product to be banned.

    But the makers of "Medal of Honor" have defended it, saying it reflects the fact that every conflict has two sides.
