Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Friday that he is “at the end of the rope” because of what he says is a lack of U.S. cooperation in the investigation of a U.S. serviceman suspected of killing of 16 Afghan civilians, the Associated Press reported.

On Friday, Karzai met with the families of the 16 Afghan civilians killed on Sunday, and told them that a team of Afghan investigators he dispatched did not receive the cooperation he was anticipating. "This has been going on for too long. This is by all means the end of the rope here," he told reporters at the end of the meeting.

"This form of activity, this behavior, cannot be tolerated. It's past, past, past the time," Karzai said.
