Afghan official says NATO violated security agreement
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
