PESHAWAR, Pakistan - The Afghan Taliban said on Saturday they had recruited an Afghan soldier who shot dead four French soldiers in the country's east a day earlier, prompting France to threaten an early pullout from the NATO-led war.

"The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has recruited people in important positions. Some of them have already accomplished their missions," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters by telephone, using another name the Islamist group call themselves.

A regional Taliban commander added that incidents such as a video showing US marines urinating on corpses was boosting support for the group among Afghans and threatened more attacks.
