PARIS, Oct 15 - "France plans to withdraw around 200 special forces from southern Afghanistan at the start of next year following a recent upsurge of violence, the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche reported on Sunday.

The French military is participating in different missions in Afghanistan and the small special forces team has been under U.S. control since 2003 as part of operation Enduring Freedom.

Nine French troops have died in fighting in Afghanistan and Le Journal du Dimanche said the relatively high death toll had played a part in the decision to withdraw the forces."
