Agreement in Afghanistan offers hope
Jim Michaels"Influential local elders in one of southern Afghanistan's deadliest regions have agreed to stop insurgent attacks and to expel foreign militants from their area, raising hopes that a growing number of civilians are turning on the Taliban and supporting Afghan and coalition forces.
""We are cautiously optimistic of this agreement and will monitor whether it leads to reduced insurgent influence and a rejection of illicit activity," Marine Maj. Gen. Richard Mills, commander of forces in southwest Afghanistan, said in a statement.
