NATO airstrike kills at least 11 Afghan civilians

At least 11 Afghan civilians have been killed in a NATO airstrike targeting Taliban fighters in the eastern province of Kunar. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has condemned the attack “in the strongest terms.”

A NATO airstrike late on Tuesday in Kunar, one of the Afghanistan‘s most volatile provinces, killed 11 Afghan civilians and wounded another 12, local officials said on Wednesday.

Provincial police chief Abdul Habib Sayedkheli said the NATO airstrike in the district of Narang had been requested by Afghan soldiers and police after coming under attack from the Taliban.

Tensions

A statement from the Afghan presidential palace said President Hamid Karzai had condemned the attack “in the strongest terms.”

Civilian casualties caused by misguided NATO aircraft remain highly sensitive in Afghanistan, occasionally triggering street protests and heightening tensions between NATO and Karzai’s government.

According to Associated Press, the death toll is fourteen.
