Scores of people rioted in Kabul on Friday after a vehicle carrying four U.S. contractors was involved in an accident with a car carrying four Afghans.
The U.S. Embassy in Kabul said it had been informed of deaths and serious injuries among the Afghans in the accident. After the accident, people burned the American vehicle and another going with it and they threw rocks at Americans.
"The U.S. contract personnel cooperated immediately with local Afghan security forces ... who were on the scene and dealing with the situation. Our sympathies go out to the families of those Afghans injured or killed in this tragic accident," the embassy said.
