Afghans uneasy over proposed US army immunity

American demand to keep soldiers immune from Afghan law has left locals worried about proposed security deal.

    More than 2,500 Afghan tribal elders are meeting in Kabul to try to reach a consensus over a proposed security arrangement between Afghanistan and the United States.

    Under the proposed agreement, the US government wants its soldiers to remain immune from Afghan law. The US puts its own soldiers on trial in military courts.

    But as Al Jazeera's Jane Ferguson reports from Kabul, this has left many Afghans feeling uneasy.
