NATO bombs kill scores of Afghan civilians

26 October 2006

According to Reuters, local leaders in Afghanistan state that NATO planes killed at least 50 civilians, mostly women and children, in bombing in southern Afghanistan on 24 October 2006.

"It was late at night - that might be the reason they didn't know where to bomb," said provincial assembly member Agha Lalai.

Visiting the wounded in hospital, tribal elder Naik Mohammad said 60 civilians had died.

Villagers also said 60 died, dozens were wounded and 25 houses razed in 4-5 hours of bombing.
