Some British military veterans from the Afghan war have taken their own lives because they are so devastated by the chaotic withdrawal of U.S.-led forces from the country and the victory of the Taliban, Britain's armed forces minister said on Monday.

James Heappey, a junior defense minister, said he was hearing the Taliban was now in control of the whole of Afghanistan but that the situation in Panjshir did not change the big picture.
