Afghan, US Reach Deal On Night Raids

4/8/2012 1:13 PM ET

Afghanistan and the United States reached a deal on Sunday to curb night raids on Afghan homes, bringing the operations under Afghan leadership.

The operations, currently carried out by Nato and Afghan special forces, have been a growing cause of friction between the Afghan government and the US military.

U.S. troops will continue to take part in operations, but a new elite force of Afghan special operations commandos will lead raids with American forces along to give advice and support.
