Afghans Protest US Presence Amid Torture Allegations

Over five hundred men marched through the streets of Afghanistan's Wardak province on Tuesday to protest the presence of US special forces who have been accused of improper behavior towards civilians in the area, allegations which include torture and murder. 

Shouting "Death to America", "Death to Obama" and "Death to special forces", the protesters demanded that all American soldiers leave the area immediately, threatening to join the Taliban if their voices weren't heard.
