Afghan-US Talks On Night Raids Ongoing

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - A U.S. official said talks with the Afghan government about night raids by NATO troops are going ahead despite the killing spree by a U.S. soldier and a combative statement from the Afghan president.

The official said the two negotiating teams are still talking and nothing has interrupted the discussions. The official spoke Friday on condition of anonymity to discuss closed-door talks.

There are worries President Hamid Karzai's call for international troops to withdraw from rural areas following Sunday's killing of 16 Afghan civilians by an American soldier could derail efforts for a long-term pact to govern U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

The issue of the night raids is key to getting to that larger deal. Karzai has demanded that no international forces take part in night raids.
