Via the BBC: Nato plans more Afghan resources

Nato Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer says a number of alliance members have offered more resources for the military campaign in Afghanistan.

Officials at a meeting of Nato defence ministers in the Dutch coastal town of Noordwijk said as many as nine nations had offered more input to the mission.

Among the new offers were two by France and Germany for military instructors.

US officials, who have been calling for allies to send more troops to Afghanistan, welcomed the development.

The Nato secretary general told a news conference: “I’ve noticed offers from nations, including for the southern part of Afghanistan.

“We have 90% filled of what we need, but there are still shortages.”

Here’s the current breakdown of the ISAF force in Afghanistan:
