NATO boosts Afghan anti-infiltration measures
Brussels: NATO`s governing body has approved a set of measures which it says are designed to reduce the risk of attacks on alliance soldiers by members of the Afghan security forces.
Spokeswoman Oana Lungescu said on Wednesday the North Atlantic Council adopted the package yesterday.
It includes embedding counterintelligence officers in the Afghan army and its training schools to detect individuals behaving suspiciously, increasing the number of Afghan intelligence officers, making sure Afghan troops are paid
regularly and get regular leave. Random drug testing will also be implemented, she said.
A number of NATO soldiers have been killed in a spate of attacks involving Afghan troops or policemen. These have raised fears of increased Taliban infiltration of Afghan forces.
