An Afghan court was quick to sentence a soldier who killed four French soldiers in a January to death.

French soldiers are part of US-led invasion into Afghanistan.

The soldier, Abdul Sabor, was sentenced to be hanged following a military court martial at Kabul's main Pul-i-Chakri prison, defence ministry deputy spokesman Brigadier General Dawlat Waziri told Reuters.

The ruling was open to appeal.

Human Rights Watch criticised the death penalty judgment and called on the French government to ask Afghan officials for it to be commuted.
