Nato troops kill Afghan child
KABUL – Nato troops have shot and killed a 12-year-old Afghan boy who was in a car with his family in Kabul, the government said, in the latest in a series of civilian deaths involving foreign forces.
Nato’s International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) confirmed there had been an incident but said it could not comment until a military police investigation was completed.
“Nato forces opened fire at a Townace civilian vehicle which apparently tried to overtake the troops or maybe the car was too close to the troops,” interior ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary said.
“A bullet hit a 12-year-old child in the car.
The child was apparently driving with his family,” he said.
