A girl, 13, killed

A 2 yr-old girl wounded

at 7 AM on April 19, 2007

in the Yaqoobi district of the Sabari desert of Khost Province, some 15 kms northeast of Khost city. A NATO occupation soldier (either US or Italian) killed a girl and wounded another when he fired at an approaching vehicle at a checkpoint. The girl died of her injuries at a hospital. As usual, a Lt. col. (Maria Carl) trotted out the pabulum, “we regret the tragic loss of life. ISAF goes to great lengths to minimize the risk of the civilian population of Afghanistan.” The mainstream media largely ignored the incident.
