INTERNATIONAL soldiers under NATO command shot dead three Afghan civilians at the weekend when they did not heed warnings to stop near checkpoints or military vehicles, the force said today.

In the eastern province of Kunar yesterday, the soldiers shot and killed two people in a truck that had not stopped at a checkpoint, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force said in a statement.

A district chief said yesterday that three other people, including a woman, were wounded in the incident. …

The forces are under fire for the casualties they cause, and have been urged by President Hamid Karzai to take more care. They have also been criticised for aggressive behaviour and intrusive searches of homes.
