Eight-year vigil damns Afghan war

Oregon group senses a change in the air over their long-term protest.

    The future of American troops in Afghanistan is again in the headlines in the US amid reports that Barack Obama, the president, has made up his mind about future troop levels there.

    Despite speculation in US media, the White House is strongly denying that Obama has decided to send as many as 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

    As Washington considers its next move in Afghanistan, protesters in a small US town are continuing an anti-war vigil they began eight years ago.

    Sebastian Walker reports on the demonstration against the war in Afghanistan from the western US state of Oregon.
