London, England (AP) – (Aug. 8)
The sale of British newspapers and magazines was banned in U.S. Army camps in Britain today until after the American presidential election.

The Army said the action was taken under the Soldiers’ Voting Act requirement which says “no member of the U.S. Armed Forces shall have his vote influenced in any way.”
