In memory of
Abdul Manan, a poor farmer
Killed on May 17, 2009
The following day, almost 100 residents of Manan’s village brought the body to the office of the Farah governor who refused to meet the angered villagers. Afghan police intervened, shooting in the air, forcing the protesters to take the body of Abdul Manan back to his village.
As usual, the U.S military issued no statement about the incident. Instead, the obedient head of police proclaimed that U.S troops had eliminated a Taliban guerrilla.
Killed by either Italian or U.S. occupation ground forces
