Afghanistan: Another massacre as a bloody summer looms in Kandahar

A car carrying an Afghan police officer and three teenagers was blasted with machine gun fire by NATO troops on Monday, allegedly because it came "too close" to a convoy traveling along a highway in the eastern province of Khost. All four occupants were killed.

After protests by the local Khost authorities and Afghan president Hamid Karzai, the ISAF admitted that all four were civilians and that no weapons had been found in the vehicle. According to the father of two of the boys who were killed, the teenagers were returning from a volleyball game.

More "winning of hearts and minds" in Afghanistan, I see.
