KABUL - A cutback on NATO military operations alongside Afghan forces in response to a surge of insider attacks that have left more than 50 foreign troops dead is a "temporary" response to current threats, a coalition spokesman said on Tuesday.

"To be honest, we see this as a temporary and prudent response to current threat levels from the US film and insider attacks," said Colonel Tom Collins, a senior spokesman for NATO-led forces in Afghanistan.
