Ashdown urges Afghanistan withdrawal

Writing in the Times, the former Lib Dem leader said it had become clear that Nato had lost the war in the country, describing the international community's efforts as "divided" and "chaotic".

"All that we can achieve has now been achieved. All that we might have achieved if we had done things differently, has been lost," he writes.
