"A magistrate will investigate whether France's military is to blame for not ensuring the safety of 10 French troops killed in an Taliban ambush on an Afghan mountaintop in 2008, officials said Monday. The probe, the first of its kind in France, could raise uncomfortable questions about whether a government can be held to account for the death of its soldiers at war -- a prospect France's top military man rejects."
