The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) is beefing up security at is military bases in Afghanistan as fears grow of attacks from Afghan soldiers and policemen within its training facilities.

Some of these Afghan recruits, who are being trained to enforce the rule of law after international troops leave, are affiliated with the Taliban and have carried out attacks against ISAF soldiers.

Now international troops are implementing new regulations, including banning sharing barracks with Afghan troops and having armed bodyguards with them when they visit Afghan soldiers.
