German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said Tuesday that the European Union had appointed a new head of the union's police training mission in Afghanistan. Schaeuble said that police Brig. Gen. Juergen Scholz would take over as commander of the mission from Brig. Gen. Friedrich Eichele, who is returning to Germany after three months in the post. Schaeuble said Eichele was "urgently needed" at home in Germany as part of reforms of the country's federal police force. Eichele was replaced amid reported complaints that the 160-strong mission is understaffed, underfunded and mismanaged.
