In pictures: Afghans debate at the Loya Jirga
Thursday 21 November 2013
Afghan delegates have assembled to listen to a speech of Afghan President Hamid Karzai during the Loya Jirga, a traditional forum dealing with significant decisions affecting the whole country.
US troops who commit crimes in Afghanistan after 2014 will be given immunity from Afghan law, the draft of an Afghan-US security deal said, as some 2,500 tribal elders gathered in Kabul to discuss the document. Taliban have condemned the meeting, saying participants would be targeted and punished as traitors.
