Insurgents kill 13 civilians

Insurgents wielding guns and bombs killed 13 civilians and wounded four others in Afghanistan, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said Friday.

The incidents occurred Thursday in the eastern and southern parts of the country.

In Ghazni province, insurgents using small arms fatally shot six civilians building and repairing roads. Three others were killed and one was wounded when a bomb struck their vehicle.

In Paktiya province, one died and another was wounded by an improvised explosive device.

In Kandahar province, a roadside bomb killed three people and wounded two others.

"You know, they [insurgents] take no holds barred against killing innocent women, children, Afghans every single day. They're in cahoots with Mullah Omar and the Taliban, have gone out recently and publicly said attack civilians, women and children," said Maj. Gen. John F. Campbell, commanding general for Regional Command-East.

    Im sorry where did it say we paid them to fix THEIR roads? And the right to defend yourself doesn't include an order to kill innocent women and children.

    True. All Islamic countries like to linger around in their centuries old patriarch society and slavery.
