A taxi driver, injured

on Tuesday, February 5, 2008


in the city of Mehtarlam, Laghman province. U.S-led forces in a convoy once again fired upon a taxi cab, deemed to be too close. The driver had tried to overtake the occupation convoy, was fired upon and injured. A few months back, U.S. occupation forces had also targeted a civilian vehicle, wounding the driver. We know about this incident because of the independent reporting by Pajhwok Afghan News. Afghans injured by US/NATO occupation forces are generally of no interest to the mainstream western press.
