Hundreds of Afghan demonstrators on March 16 marched to the parliament complex in the capital Kabul demanding US special forces withdraw from Wardak province after allegations of abuse. President Hamid Karzai ordered elite US units to pull out of the strategic province after he alleged that US soldiers and Afghan militia working with them had tortured and murdered civilians. A few hundred protesters, many from Wardak, gathered in Kabul for the rally, which was overseen by a large number of armed riot police.
