ISAF command to change generals in Afghanistan

(ANSA) - Brussels, October 10 - NATO officials in Brussels on Wednesday were expected to announce that US General Joseph Dunford will succeed US General John Allen as ISAF commander in Afghanistan. Allen is moving on to become the next NATO supreme allied commander in early 2013, succeeding Admiral James Stavridis. The announcement is expected to come at the NATO Defense Ministers council meeting at Alliance headquarters in Brussels, where members are discussing how to reduce so-called 'green on blue' attacks from insider Afghan agents, which have killed or injured over 100 allied troops since the start of the year.
