KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghanistan's president says all U.S. special forces must leave eastern Wardak province within two weeks because of allegations that Afghans working with them are torturing and abusing other Afghans.
Presidential spokesman Aimal Faizi says Sunday's decision was taken during a meeting of the National Security Council because of the alleged actions of Afghans who are linked to the U.S. special forces.
He said the government wants the individuals, whom he did not identify, to be handed over to the government.
Wardak is a restive province next to Kabul and has been the focus of counterinsurgency efforts.
