Once again, there is anger in Afghanistan over apparently needless killing of Afghan civilians by NATO forces during a raid on a family home. Clayton Swisher reports for Al Jazeera.
What I found particularly disturbing was the manner in which one of those killed was reported to have answered the door for the NATO troops, spoken to them in English, and then suddenly been shot to death. NATO acknowledges the raid took place, but refuses any further comment.
This incident, which is sadly representative of dozens more, is all the more controversial coming on the heels of a UN report stating that civilian deaths in Afghanistan are up 31% so far this year.
So, hearts and minds, eh?
