KABUL: The U.S.-led coali­tion vi­o­lated a se­cu­rity agree­ment in Kabul when its troops raided a pri­vate se­cu­rity com­pany in the cap­i­tal and killed two guards, the Afghan In­te­rior Min­istry spokesman said Sun­day.

Spokesman Ze­marai Bashary said the po­lice gen­eral who helped them has been sus­pended and an in­ves­ti­ga­tion was un­der way into why coali­tion forces on Fri­day raided the com­pound of Tiger In­ter­na­tional, an Afghan pri­vate se­cu­rity com­pany, killing two guards and wound­ing two oth­ers. Afghan se­cu­rity forces have for the past two years had con­trol of Kabul and all NATO op­er­a­tions in the city must be cleared with the govern­ment.

"That was a very tragic and un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent which oc­curred in Kabul two nights ago. The forces which were in­volved in that op­er­a­tion didn't pay any at­ten­tion to the rules and reg­u­la­tions which we were agreed upon ear­lier re­gard­ing such op­er­a­tions in Kabul," he said. -Ap
