A French soldier gestures to a dog as he and his comrades prepare to depart for Kabul following a handover ceremony at the French military Camp Nijrab in Nijrab district of Kapisa province on November 20, 2012. France ended its combat mission in Afghanistan November 20, withdrawing troops from a strategic province northeast of Kabul as part of a quickened departure from the war-torn country. Paris says all French combat soldiers will leave the country next month, two years before allied nations contributing to the 100,000-strong International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) led by the United States are due to depart.
