FRANCE has suspended operations with the Afghan army and threatened to withdraw its forces early from the country after an Afghan soldier shot dead four French troops yesterday.

President Nicolas Sarkozy ordered an immediate review of security for troops training Afghan soldiers.

The killings during a training exercise at a military base in Kapisa province followed a similar attack last month, in which two French soldiers died. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
