11 Afghan Civilians Killed in NATO Bombing Raid

KABUL – At least 11 civilians died and 13 others were injured in a raid by NATO warplanes in eastern Kunar province, an Afghan official confirmed to Efe on Wednesday.

The strike took place Tuesday as the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force was targeting Taliban strongholds in cooperation with Afghan units, government spokesman Abdullah Gani said.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack in a statement, while the Taliban denounced what its spokesman, Zabiuallah Mujahid, described to Efe as “random bombing of civilians’ homes.”

Kunar province is considered a Taliban stronghold due to its location on the border with Pakistan.

Afghan and ISAF forces target the area continuously and three insurgents died Monday in U.S. drone strikes.

In late August, residents of eastern Nuristan province marched through Kabul to protest the death of 40 civilians in NATO airstrikes.

Afghanistan finds itself in one of its bloodiest moments since the U.S.-led invasion of October 2001, which brought about the fall of the Taliban regime.
