    The soldiers betrayed his country. The country was captured by the ruthless invaders.

    1. Following the soldiers' betrayal, his country was conquered by the ruthless invaders.
    2. Following the soldiers' betrayal of his country, it was conquered by the ruthless invaders.

    Which of the sentences is correct for reporting the sentences in bold?

    Thanks.

    I think both are right. I'd go for the first one.
