  KABUL, March 6 (Xinhua) -- British Prime Minister Gordon Brown paid an unannounced visit to restive Helmand province in south Afghanistan on Saturday, a local Afghan official said.

  Prime Minister Brown arrived in Helmand province this morning and visited his troops as well as a police training center there, the official told Xinhua but declined to be identified.

  The visit took place amid an ongoing major offensive against the Taliban bastion in Marja and Nad Ali districts where 15,000 Afghan and NATO-led troops have been fighting insurgents since February 13 to restore government control there.
