Afghan conference in Bonn as Nato troops eye exit

A major international conference on Afghanistan's future is due to open in the German city of Bonn.

It comes 10 years after a similar gathering held in the city, weeks after the Taliban fell from power.

Organisers want to bolster long-term international engagement with Afghanistan and support efforts to restore security.

But key player Pakistan is boycotting the talks in protest at a Nato attack on a border checkpoint last month.

David Loyn reports.
