Afghan 'war criminals' under scanner

An international rights groupsays Afghanistan's US-backed government has numerous officials who are implicated in war crimes and they should be brought to justice.

The New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) has urged Afghan President Hamid Karzai to set up a special court to try major war criminals - including some who are part of his government - saying such a move is vital for the nation to emerge from a quarter-century of bloodshed.
