Germany to dismantle special forces as criticisms over failure to meet NATO obligation mounts

Germany's defence minister said she has ordered the partial dissolution of the elite KSK commando force.

Reports say that one of the force's four companies is to be dissolved.

This comes at a time when Germany is facing mounting criticism within NATO for its failure to meet its obligation to spend 2% of GDP on defence.

KSK operations will be moved to other units as far as possible, and it will not take part in international exercises and missions until further notice.
