FRANCE-AFGHANISTAN-DEFENCE

French Prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault (L) as he reviews troops of the 2nd Engineer French Foreign Legion Regiment, on December 17, 2012 in Clermont-Ferrand, central France, during a ceremony marking the dissolution of a joint tactical bataillon that served in Afghanistan from May to November 2012. France joined the NATO coalition in late 2001 to help prop up the new government against an insurgency, which began after a US-led invasion toppled the Taliban government earlier that year for giving refuge to Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda network, following the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.
