US under pressure over Karzai win

Second term for Afghan president comes amid lukewarm relationship with Washington.

    US under pressure over Karzai win 
     
    Eight years ago, Washington picked Hamid Karzai to lead an interim government following the US invasion of Afghanistan.

    Since then, his relationship with the US has grown increasingly strained.

    As John Terrett reports, another Karzai term puts more pressure on the Obama administration as it considers its Afghan strategy.
