29/12/09

At least 10 Afghan civilians, mostly school children, have been killed in an air raid by Nato-led forces in the east of the country, the office of Hamid Karzai, the president, has said. The incident reportedly occurred on Sunday in a remote part of Kunar province on the border with Pakistan, the statement added. “It is a very rugged area, we cannot go there because of the presence of the Taliban,” Sayed Fazlullah Wahedi, the Kunar state governor, said on Monday. “Elders of the village have told us that 10 people have been killed in this air strike, eight of them school students,” Wahedi said.
