Special Envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan to Step Down
Marc Grossman will be replaced by his deputy
The U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan is stepping down.
The State Department says Marc Grossman will leave next month to return to private life, and will be replaced by his deputy, David Pearce.
Grossman came out of retirement to take the job early last year, following the sudden death of former envoy Richard Holbrooke.
