A girl killed

Mother wounded

in late June 2007 

in the Sangin area of Helmand Province. Occupation soldiers of the 1st Battalion Royal Irish Regiment (RIR) based at Camp Shorabak (built by the US Army in March 2007 at a cost of $60 millions) injured a child and her daughter with indirect fire. The girl died of her injuries. The killing sparked a protest by Afghan National Army satrap troops and local people who surrounded the RIR base. This incident went totally unreported for more than a month.
