Sandhurst training for Afghanistan's army recruits

The first group of officer cadets at a new British-run academy in Afghanistan are now half way through their training.

The academy, modelled on Sandhurst, will be the only British military effort in Afghanistan after combat operations end at the end of the year.

David Loyn joined the cadets on a training exercise on the hills near Kabul.
