In memory of
At least 4 civilians killed
in a village of the Dawlat Shah district in the mountainous
region (21 kms from the provincial capital Mehterlam) of Laghman Province. U.S/NATO war planes engaged in close air
support precision-bombed a home. The local police chief told a news agency that
he knew four civilians were killed and others injured. Four months ago, two special
forces soldiers of the French occupation troops were killed in an ambush while
on a patrol south of Mehterlam. The NATO spokesperson major Dominic Whyte,
uttered the usual half-truth, “…there was close air support. No report on
civilian casualties.” Some bodies just do not exist.
