President Karzai “has suspended the three police special forces commanders responsible for securing the capital during crucial presidential elections, and plans to try them in a court martial for making illegal detentions and desecrating a mosque”, the British newspaper reports. “The three men have also been accused of collaborating with US and British commandos to serve foreign rather than Afghan aims”  and were removed in late April, suspedning “all special operations raids by police commandos”.
