French train Afghan police ahead of drawdown

French soldiers train recruits to implement rule of law ahead of their withdrawal this year.

    The National Police Training Academy in Wardak is where French soldiers train new recruits for the Afghan police force.

    They perform many types of drills, from mob control and manning checkpoints, to responding to attacks.

    By the time the French soldiers pull out - scheduled for the end of this year - the recruits will take over security responsibility in Afghanistan.

    Their primary mission will be to spread the rule of law in a country beset by decades of war.
