Afghans protest US-led hit on civilians

Hundreds of Afghan angry protesters have rallied against US-led military operations in Afghanistan following the death of nine children in northeast of the country.

The protesters held the demonstrations on Wednesday, a day after a US-led air strike claimed the lives of nine children in Darah-Ye Pech district in Kunar province.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said late Tuesday it was probing the civilian casualties after its troops carried out the aerial attack.

The incident is the latest report of civilian deaths by the US-led forces in Afghanistan.

The Kabul government says the US-led military alliance is violating security agreements by killing Afghan security guards and civilians.

Thousands of Afghan people have been killed so far as a result of military operations by foreign troops since the 2001 US-led invasion.

Afghan officials, including President Hamid Karzai, have repeatedly condemned repeated attacks by US-led foreign forces on civilians and called for halt to such operations.
