French bombs kill three in Afghanistan
Sunday 26 February 2012
Provincial council representative Khwaja Ghulam Mohammad Zmarai said that Nato personnel had launched the raid on Tagab district after residents passed on “inaccurate information” about the presence of Taliban militants in the area.
The deadly air strike was mounted less than two weeks after Nato bombers killed eight Afghan shepherds in the same province.
The strike underlined a sixth consecutive day [of] mass protests demanding the withdrawal of occupation forces in towns across Afghanistan which continue despite the best efforts of Hamid Karzai’s government to suppress them.
Officials said that police killed at least two demonstrators in northern Afghanistan today after a crowd fired on officers and threw grenades at a nearby US base, taking the death toll in the crackdown to at least 31.
Seven Nato troops were wounded in the grenade attack.
The militant demonstrations kicked off last Tuesday when it emerged that US soldiers had burned Korans at the US military base and detention camp at Bagram.
Over 130,000 US-led troops are currently deployed in Afghanistan, ostensibly to bring security to the underdeveloped country.
But occupation forces are finding it increasingly difficult to secure themselves.
Nato ordered military personnel out of Afghan ministries on Saturday after a gunman killed a US lieutenant colonel and a major with shots to the back of the head inside the heavily guarded interior ministry building in Kabul.
Foreigners working at the US embassy and at international organisations have been banned from leaving their compounds.
US officials said they were searching for the assailant, who has not been identified by name or nationality.
Afghan media reported that it was a police intelligence officer, without citing a source.
Two more US soldiers were shot to death in Afghanistan Thursday by Afghan soldiers and an Afghan civilian instructor, the third such incident in the past ten days, since the burning of Korans at the main US airbase at Bagram touched off a wave of rebellion throughout the country: here.
