KABUL (AFP) - The Afghan cabinet demanded Monday a renegotiation of agreements regulating the presence of international troops in Afghanistan after more than 90 civilians were killed in US-led air strikes.
The cabinet said the review should focus on the "authorities and responsibilities" of international troops and demand a halt to air strikes on civilians, illegal detentions and unilateral house searches, a statement said.
"The presence of the international community in Afghanistan must be reviewed through a mutual agreement," it said.
"The authorities and responsibilities of the international forces in Afghanistan must be regulated through a 'status of force agreement' consistent with both international and Afghan laws," it added.
And, "air strikes on civilian targets, uncoordinated house searches and illegal detention of Afghan civilians must be stopped."
