5 dead in airstrike as claims of Afghan civilian deaths probed

NATO forces killed five armed men in eastern Afghanistan on Friday, and the command is investigating allegations of civilian casualties, the International Security Assistance Force said.

The incident occurred in the Nadir Shar Kot district of Khost province, when an air weapons team was on patrol.

Helicopters spotted people with weapons moving from a "previously identified enemy position near Sinzai Kalay village." ISAF is sending an assessment team to the region to look into claims of civilian casualties.

    Now imagine that all the relatives of the dead civilians will vow revenge. NATO just created a dozen more enemies.

    NATO needs to be put under the control of Indian Army. We will teach NATO how to fight and hide civilian deaths. Afterall, we have experience in killing 80,000 kashmiris demanding freedom. No joke !!

      There usually are civilian deaths and NATO usually covers them up,not wanting to hurt their image around the world.
