Afghanistan suspends talks after US-Taliban move

Afghanistan has suspended talks under way in Kabul on a bilateral security agreement with the US.

A spokesman for President Hamid Karzai said the decision was taken in protest over inconsistencies in proposed US direct talks with the Taliban.

It follows the death of four US soldiers, who were killed at the Bagram airbase in a Taliban attack.
