PARIS (AP) -- France's president says four French soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan.

Nicolas Sarkozy says that France is suspending its training programs for Afghan troops after the killing. The U.S.-led coalition said an Afghan soldier shot and killed four NATO troops in eastern Afghanistan on Friday.

Sarkozy said it's "unacceptable" that Afghan troops fire at French soldiers. He said French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe is heading to Afghanistan.

The attack was among the most deadly for French forces in the 10 years they have been serving in the NATO-led international force in Afghanistan.
