From Morning Report, 7:54 am on 30 May 2017

New Zealand's been asked to send two more defence force personnel to Afghanistan, as part of the NATO-led training and assistance mission. Reuters' Kabul-based journalist Josh Smith says despite the aim since 2014 to play a strictly advisory role, allied troops have re-entered combat zones to provide more basic training to Afghan soldiers.
