Germany Seen Sending Tanks to Afghanistan

Germany's defense minister plans to send light tanks to support Bundeswehr soldiers policing the dangerous northern Afghanistan city of Kunduz, according to a newspaper. The daily Bild reported that Peter Struck wants to send eight "Wiesels," light tanks outfitted with a 20mm cannon. There are currently 170 German soldiers in the northern city providing security in the dangerous drug trade hub. The number of soldiers will climb to 370 by June.
