Civilising Mission Progress Update

Nato airstrike kills 90 including 40 civilians in Afghanistan – World news, News – Belfasttelegraph.co.uk

A police official in northern Afghanistan said a Nato airstrike on two hijacked fuel tankers killed 90 people, including 40 civilians.

Police and government officials in Kunduz Province say the blast occurred after the Taliban hijacked two trucks delivering fuel to Nato forces.

Chief of Police Gulam Mohyuddin said the trucks were hit by a Nato airstrike late last night.

Mr Mohyuddin said the Taliban were distributing the fuel to area villagers when the airstrike occurred. He said that 90 people were killed, including 50 Taliban and 40 civilians.

Nato confirmed that there was an airstrike in Kunduz Province overnight but gave no details.

Sure they’re only Afghans.

    They’re certainly free now, the poor bastards. I love the smell of liberty in the morning.
