German Parliament Approves Planes for Afghanistan
The German parliament on Friday voted to send a handful of reconnaissance jets to Afghanistan. But not everybody is happy with the decision. --- The planes will be stationed at the German base at Masar-i-Scharif in northern Afghanistan. Germany will also be sending an additional 500 support personnel in a mission that has been authorized until the next time the Afghanistan mission comes up for review on October 13, 2007. The Tornado mission will cost an additional €35 million.
