SBS & US Special Forces in Afghanistan

Footage showing a contingent of Special Boat Service (SBS) and US Special Forces returning to the scene of an uprising of captured Taliban at a fort in Afghanistan, 2001. The SBS are in the 2 white land rovers. These SBS men were operating as part of joint UK-US quick reaction force (QRF) based in the nearby city of Mazar-i-Sharif. When several hundred Taliban prisoners incarcerated in the fort revolted, broke into the armory and attempted to shoot their way out, the QRF was called in and was soon drawn into a prolonged and bloody gun battle, one that lasted several days.
