KABUL, June 29 – U.S. soldiers killed four civilian members of the same family during a raid on Friday in Afghanistan‘s eastern province of Nangarhar, an Afghan rights body said.

The soldiers also arrested 15 civilians during the pre-dawn raid in Khogiani district which lies in the foothills of the provincial capital Jalalabad, the head of Afghanistan’s Human Rights Group said.

Those killed in the raid were an 85-year-old man, Mohammada Jan, two of his sons and a grandson, Lal Gul told Reuters.

“The American soldiers blew up the gate of Mohammada Jan’s house and then martyred him along with his three family members,” Gul said.

“From there they went to several other houses, broke into them and arrested 15 civilians,” he added.

Jalalabad, by the way, is not a Taliban zone, but a stronghold of the political Left in Afghanistan.

  1. MOHAMMED THE KABUL RED

    Here’s a song about a man
    Leftist in Afghanistan
    Fought against the Taliban
    When their backers were American

    New way for Afghanistan
    Radical, secular programme
    Woman liberated, equal to man
    But that didn’t suit the American…

    Chorus

    Mohammed the Kabul Red
    Fought bin Laden all the way
    Mohammed the Kabul Red
    Member of the PDPA

    Taliban funded by the CIA
    Bin Laden trained by the CIA
    Terrorists supported by the CIA
    Medieval thugs in Washington’s pay…

    Mohammed tortured, hung in the street
    Woman stoned for showing her feet
    White House says – ‘Job’s complete!
    Now we’ve got those Commies beat!’

    Chorus

    Terrorists strike – fire and flame
    And bin Laden gets the blame
    Trade Centre bombed, American tears
    So why did they fund him for over ten years?

    Here’s a song about a man
    Leftist in Afghanistan
    Fought against the Taliban
    When their backers were American

    Chorus

    P – D – PDPA
    P – D – PDPA
    P – D – PDPA
    P – D – PDPA

    Poem by Attila the Stockbroker from England
