In addition, the American-led coalition said that it had asked the Afghan government to investigate allegations of torture by Afghan Local Police units that have been trained and advised by American Special Operations forces.

But the Afghan Minister of Interior Mujtaba Patang has rejected the findings of abuse by Afghan Local Police.

It comes as the transfer of prisoners to Afghan government is one of the main condition of Afghan government for signing the Kabul-Washington security agreement.
