    In a statement, Afghan President Hamid Karzai says he will not sign the security agreement with the U.S. if drone attacks continue. Karzai's declaration comes as he accused the U.S. of a drone strike Thursday that he says killed a two-year-old child. Despite years of negotiations, Karzai had attacked the tentative security agreement over issues ranging from U.S. involvement in elections and ending military raids. “This attack shows that American forces are not respecting the life and safety of Afghan people’s houses,” he said, "For years, our innocent people have become victims of the war under the name of terrorism, and they have had no safety in their homes.”
