US army struggles to combat suicide

More army members killed themselves in 2012 than the number of soldiers who died in combat in Afghanistan.

    Suicides among US army personnel are on the rise. In the first four months of this year, more than 160 soldiers have taken their own lives.

    The Pentagon has released a report detailing the depth of the problem.
