and in another incident today, four french soldiers were killed and 16 others wounded when a rogue afghan soldier turned on them, as they were leaving the fitness facility there. nato says they apprehended the gunman but president sarkozy of france stated that he is suspending all military training and combat operations of the french military near afghanistan until further notice. this is not good news for nato, the united states, or the afghans here, because nato and the u.s. are hoping that the coalition partners can work together to train the afghans. so in fact they can take over the responsibility of their own security by 2014 so the foreign combat troops could finally leave afghanistan. >> thank you very much for that update. marla? >> this morning, firefighters are gaining ground on the fast-moving brushfire burning near reno. firefighters say the fire is 50%
