12 more months

The German government is to ask the German Parliment to extend the army's stay in Afghanistan by another year.

The German cabinet agreed on Wednesday to ask parliament to extend the army's peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan by a further 12 months despite criticism that it is ineffective.

Germany has around 2,000 soldiers in the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, its largest military force abroad.
