33 Civilians Killed by NATO Airstrike in Afghanistan
Posted by Derrick Crowe on February 22nd, 2010

On Sunday, NATO forces in Uruzgan province in Afghanistan killed more than thirty civilians, including women and children, when an airstrike was ordered on three minivans.

According to the AP story on the incident:

“‘This creates an opportunity for the Taliban to use this against the Afghan government and the Americans,’ said Mohammed Hashim Watanwal, a lawmaker from southern Uruzgan province, where the strike took place. ‘NATO has said that it will take care to avoid civilian casualties, but they don’t follow through.’”

Among the dead were a 3-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl.

But at least we said we’re sorry.
