Afghanistan 'lacks Nato trainers'

High-ranking US official says more military instructors are needed to train Afghans.

    Afghanistan is in dire need of Nato military instructors, the chairman of the US armed services committee has warned.

    Senator Carl Levin, who visited Afghanistan earlier this week, said training was crucial in the strategy to help Afghans take the lead in securing their own nation.

    But as Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports from a Nato training camp in Kabul, building an effective Afghan military force is going to take a long time.
