    Afghan President Hamid Karzai said his government would not participate in US peace talks with the Taliban, explaining that all such negotiations should be "Afghan-led".

    The announcement came just days before US-Taliban meetings were due to start in Qatar - and less than 24 hours after Karzai had said that he would send a team to take part.
