KABUL – British troops killed an Afghan woman and wounded a woman and a child in a car accident in Kabul Wednesday, a spokesman for the Kabul police chief said, adding that initial reports a man had been shot dead at the scene were wrong.
Spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai said information he had initially given out, that two women and a man had been killed, was the result of miscommunication between security forces.
The accident came at a time of heightened anti-Western sentiment across Afghanistan because of the burning of a Koran by a radical fundamentalist U.S. pastor in late March.
There have been days of protests about the desecration of Islam’s holy book, some of which have turned deadly. Seven foreign U.N. staff and at least 17 Afghans have been killed in violence in northern Mazar-i-Sharif and southern Kandahar city.

About 80 people attended her talk, which was hosted by the group Peace Action of Washington and was her seventh in the Puget Sound area this week”: here.
