Amid Torture Allegations, Afghan President Expels U.S. Soldiers

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is giving U.S. special forces two weeks to leave a key battleground province after it was revealed that some soldiers in the area tortured and even killed innocent people, the president's spokesman said on Sunday.

Speaking at a news conference in Kabul, the President's spokesman, Aimal Faizi, said villagers from the Wardak province filed complaints in regards to the behavior of U.S. special forces in the area and a group of Afghans who worked with them.
