    NATO defence ministers meeting in Brussels are discussing - among other things - how many US soldiers and bases will remain in Afghanistan after most foreign combat troops leave at the end of next year.

    US and NATO officials have said they are confident the Afghan Parliament will give them the green light to allow a number of soldiers to stay after 2014.
