Canada slams NATO over Afghanistan

Canada could withdraw all its troops from Afghanistan next year if other countries don't put reinforcements in the country's south.

Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, criticised NATO's current leadership calling it a threat to the future of the military bloc.

Canada has 2,500 troops in Afghanistan and has lost almost 80 personnel since 2002 – almost one person a month.
