KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Afghanistan's president has issued a decree formalizing a four-month deadline for private security companies to disband.

The decree issued Tuesday says that private security contractors working in Afghanistan will have to either join the Afghan police force or cease operations.

The decree provides an exception for private security firms working inside compounds used by embassies, international organizations and all non-governmental organizations.
