in Gongi village of Qarabagh district located ~50 kms southwest of Ghazni city. NATO forces raided the village, killing one child, wounding another and abducting three family members to a fate unknown. About 20 elders of Gongi village went to the provincial capital, Ghazni, to complain. Some days later, a US air raid in the Andar district of Ghazni wounded four civilians and destroyed 10 homes. Residents of Ghazni then warned Karzai that they would stage a revolt against “coalition forces” if Karzai did not stop such irresponsible operations.
