Inside an Afghan Army training camp

It's less than two weeks since four French soldiers were gunned down by a rogue Afghan soldier during a jogging session. France immediately denounced it as a Taliban attack, and the French mission was suspended while security was stepped up. Witnesses have also described tensions between the Afghan soldiers and their mentors. So how do the Afghans themselves explain what happened, and how did they carry on without the French? Afghan journalist Sultan Faizy goes inside a training camp in Kabul.
