No US troops ‘mass exodus’ from Afghanistan next year, says Gen Petraeus – Telegraph

General David Petraeus said fighting in the nine-year-long campaign in Afghanistan would get “harder before it gets easier” as troops tried to flush militants from southern strongholds.

He said troops would not rush to pull out in July 2011, when Mr Obama has promised Americans that the United State’s 100,000-strong contingent would begin to go home.

The general spoke as four more foreign soldiers, including two French, a Hungarian and an American, died in attacks around the country.
