"New Zealand's elite commandos will pull out of Afghanistan in March, the nation's prime minister said Thursday, ending the Special Air Service troops' eight-year engagement in the war against insurgents. Prime Minister John Key said the 35-troop contingent will leave the Afghan capital, Kabul, after spending the past two years training the city's Crisis Response Unit soldiers to take the lead in securing the city."
