The French foreign ministry has announced that they are temporarily withdrawing all civilian mentors and advisers from Afghan government institutions.

Sunday's announcement comes on the heels of a NATO announcement that they would be withdrawing their civilian and military advisers from the Afghan capital following the deaths of two American ISAF military advisers at Kabul's interior ministry on Saturday.
