A large number of Afghans have staged a rally in the eastern city of Jalalabad to show their opposition to a possible security deal with the United States. Protesters say American forces are responsible for the deaths of many civilians in their country. Demonstrators also called on the participants of the Loya Jirga to reject a possible agreement. The Jirga is a gathering of elders from across Afghanistan which will decide on the fate of the deal next week. The deal between Kabul and Washington will allow thousands of American troops to stay in Afghanistan beyond 20-14. The issue of whether or not to grant legal immunity to American forces remains a sticking point.
