Afghan villagers say airstrikes killed civilians

Two Afghan villagers alleged today that airstrikes hit a wedding party in southern Afghanistan and killed or wounded dozens of women and children.

No Afghan officials could immediately confirm the number of alleged casualties, but President Hamid Karzai appeared to refer to the incident at a news conference held to congratulate Barack Obama on his US presidential election victory.

Karzai said his first demand for the new president was to prevent civilians casualties in operations by foreign forces. He then said airstrikes had caused deaths in the Shah Wali Kot district of Kandahar province.

“As we speak, there are civilian casualties in Afghanistan,” Karzai said.

Karzai demands ‘timeline’ on war

KABUL: President Hamid Karzai demanded at a meeting with a UN Security Council team yesterday that the international community set a “timeline” for ending military intervention in Afghanistan, his office said.

Karzai told a delegation from the Council that his country needed to know how long the US-led “war on terror” was going to be fought in Afghanistan or it would have to seek a political solution to a Taliban-led insurgency.
