Afghanistan and U.N. Agency Agree on Police Funding Plan

Afghanistan and the United Nations have reached agreement to transfer to Kabul's control a controversial multi-billion dollar fund intended to rebuild the police force and pay officers, the U.N. Development Programme (UNDP) said on Monday.
The deal transferring the fund over 18 months and to be signed by both parties on Tuesday is a breakthrough after months of negotiations over how rapidly it should pass to Afghan control.
