Nato to discuss Afghan funding after pull-out

Nato foreign and defence ministers are set to meet in Brussels to discuss how to fund security forces in Afghanistan once international troops leave.

They insist there will be no change in strategy despite Sunday's co-ordinated attacks by the Taliban.

Nato has agreed to start handing over security to Afghan forces, leaving them in full control from the end of 2014.

The US is expected to ask international partners to provide up to a quarter of the costs of backing Afghan forces.

Tom Esslemont reports.
