in the village of Kakarak in Uruzgan Province. U.S war planes attacked a string of small villages after 1 AM. Lakik, 35, a bearded farmer lost his wife, 3 children and several relatives. He also saw two men cut down beside him. He said, “three of us were drinking tea together in the courtyard when they first bombed. They killed my friend right here where we are. Then we ran out of the compound and my other friend was killed…the Americans were bombing the house and we could not believe it, we were running away to hide.” Laik ran into the fields and hid in a small ditch.
