No decision on Taliban prisoners release: US

The US has not taken a decision on whether to release five prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay as part of a peace process with the Taliban. Deborah Lutterbeck reports. US Af-Pak envoy Marc Grossman, following two days of talks in Kabul with Afghan President Hamid Karzai , said he agreed with Afghan government demands that any negotiations should be under the umbrella of a " peace process among Afghans".The Taliban announced this month that the Islamist group would open a political office in Qatar as a prelude to holding peace talks with the United States and its allies.
