At least 500 men have taken to the provincial capital of Maidan Wardak to protest the actions of US special forces in Afghanistan.

Tuesday's demonstration comes days after Hamid Karzai, Afghan president, called on US special forces to leave the eastern province within two weeks.

The US special forces, and Afghans working with them, have been accused of torture, theft and even murder in the province directly west of Kabul.

Residents in three villages of the province told Al Jazeera their family members were killed or tortured during US raids.
