KABUL, Afghanistan, May 21 (Reuters) - President Hamid Karzai, said Saturday that he was shocked by a United States Army report on abuse of detainees in Afghanistan, saying his government wanted custody of all Afghan prisoners and control over American military operations.
The abuse described in the report, including details of the deaths of two inmates at an Afghan detention center, emerged from a file of nearly 2,000 pages from Army investigators, The New York Times reported Friday.
"It has shocked me thoroughly, and we condemn it," Mr. Karzai said in a news conference. "We want the U.S. government to take very, very strong action, to take away people like that."
