Kabul slams US over security violations

The Kabul government says the US-led military alliance is violating security agreements by killing Afghan security guards and civilians.

The Afghan Interior Ministry said NATO was violating a security agreement it had signed with the Kabul government based on which all NATO operations in Kabul must be cleared with the government. 

The development comes days after US-led forces raided a private security company’s compound in Kabul killing two Afghan guards.

“Foreign forces have conducted an operation in district four of Kabul city in which two private guards of the business were killed,” said Mohammad Zahir, the police chief of criminal investigations.

Interior Ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary said Sunday an investigation would be launched into the incident.

The Interior Ministry said the government is suspending an Afghan police general who helped the US-led forces carry out the raid.

Hundreds of civilians have lost their lives in the US-led airstrikes and ground operations in various parts of Afghanistan over the past few months, with Afghans becoming more outraged over the seemingly endless number of deadly assaults.  Please see the entire story here
