National intelligence chief of Afghanistan dismissed

Afghan President Hamid Karzai dismissed the national intelligence chief Wednesday, and lawmakers said he will submit nominees to replace the defense and interior ministers who were removed earlier this month by parliament.

The president is trying to shore up his shaken security team as his administration struggles to build an army and police force that can fight the Taliban as U.S. and other foreign forces begin to withdraw.

The shakeup could also set up a new showdown with the country’s parliament — which must approve the candidates — because his reported choice for defense minister was one of the men who had been ousted by lawmakers, the Washington Post reported.
