Denmark has for years sent soldiers with mental problems to the war zones, according to the Danish newspaper Politiken.
The information is based on data from the Danish Ministry of Defence. It was examined in the statistics from 2009 that mentally incapable persons were found that over three percent of the soldiers sent to Afghanistan was mentally unstable.
The soldiers suffered in particular from anxiety or had sudden fits of rage. They also suffered from insomnia. Denmark has not had the habit of investigating if the soldiers' mental health is adequate for the war zones, writes Politiken.
Ministry of Defence admits that the information is correct. Now promises to change the current practice.
