|Four French soldiers have been killed in northern Afghanistan after a serviceman from the Afghan National Army opened fire, local officials say. |
Sixteen more members of the French armed forces were injured in the incident in Kapisa province.
An official told the BBC that an Afghan non-commissioned officer got into a "verbal clash" and opened fire.
President Nicolas Sarkozy said France was suspending its training programmes in Afghanistan following the attack.
He was sending his defence minister, Gerard Longuet, to the country "immediately," he said.
