Hundreds protest in Afghan capital

Angry protests in Afghanistan's capital Kabul as hundreds call for the withdrawal of U.S troops from Wardak province. Afghan president Hamid Karzai gave U.S special forces two weeks to leave the province last month. This followed accusations that Afghans working for them tortured and killed innocent people. Wardak residents travelled to the capital on Saturday and demanded the president keep to his word after agreeing to give the US more time to maintain security in the province. This man says Special Forces not only tortured innocent people but also detained 10 people and protesters were demanding their release. Another accused supporters of the continued US presence in Wardak of being foreign spies. Wardak is known as the gateway to Kabul and the surrounding mountains are an ideal staging post for Taliban militants who bring in bombers and weapons to the capital. .
