Washington: A spokesman for Gen John Allen says the top US and NATO commander of the war in Afghanistan has returned to Kabul to resume his duties, more than a week after the Pentagon announced it is investigating potentially "inappropriate" correspondence between the four-star general and a woman linked to the former CIA chief David Petraeus` sex scandal.

He was expected to testify before a Senate committee last Thursday on his nomination to become the commander of US European Command and the top NATO general.
Defence Secretary Leon Panetta has put that nomination on hold.
