US officials say progress made in Afghan talks
US officials say some progress has been made in US Secretary of State John Kerry's talks with Afghan President Hamid Karzai on a security deal to allow American troops to remain in the country after the NATO-led military mission ends next year.

 

The officials said talks were extended Saturday on a bilateral security agreement that the United States wants by the end of October. Kerry's unannounced overnight visit to Kabul comes as talks foundered over issues of Afghan sovereignty despite a year of negotiations. (AP)
