Afghan president: US violating detainee pact
KABUL (AP) - Afghanistan's president says United States forces are continuing to capture and hold Afghans in violation of an agreement signed between the two countries.
President Hamid Karzai says in a statement issued late on Sunday that some of detainees are still held by US forces even though Afghan judges have ruled that they be released. He also decries the continued arrest of Afghans by US forces.
Mr Karzai's office says these acts "are completely against the agreement that has been signed".
The two countries signed the detainee transfer pact in March but the handover has been slowed by the US.
