NATO says it killed four insurgents in the operation outside of Taloqan city in Takhar province. The coalition says the combined Afghan-NATO force was careful to ensure the safety of civilians.
But Takhar Gov. Abdul Jabar Taqwa says no one in his government was informed about the raid and that NATO acted unilaterally. Military and police officials could not be reached for comment.
During Wednesday’s protest in Taloqan, the demonstrators carried the bodies of the four dead – two women and two men – into the city. They shouted insults at the Afghan president and the U.S. as they went.

Tom Engelhardt, TomDispatch: “At home and abroad, whether judging by airline pilots or Washington’s war policy, Americans seem remarkably incapable of doing anything other than repeating the same self-defeating acts, as if they had never happened before. Hence Afghanistan. Almost 10 years after the Bush administration invaded Afghanistan and proclaimed victory, like imam-paralyzed airline pilots, we find ourselves in a state that might otherwise be achieved only if you mated deja vu with a Mobius strip. If you aren’t already bored to death, you should be. Because, believe me, you’ve read it all before. Take the last month of news from America’s second Afghan War. If nobody told you otherwise, you could easily believe that almost every breaking Afghan story in the last four weeks came from some previous year of the war”: here.
