KABUL (AFP) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday claimed victory in his latest dispute with the US after accusing its special forces of abusing civilians in the key strategic province of Wardak. Karzai had demanded that the elite US units leave the province, just outside Kabul. On Wednesday, a deal was stuck in which Afghan forces will take responsibility for security in Nerkh, one of Wardak’s eight districts. The agreement made no mention of special forces, and the US-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said that it was “business as usual” for its troops in the rest of Wardak.
