Afghan President Hamid Karzai Thursday accused NATO-led international forces of killing seven civilians, most of them children, in an air strike in the southern province of Kandahar.

“Initial reports as stated by the district sub-governor indicate that an air strike carried out by the international forces in Siacha village in Zhari district killed seven persons including six children and injured another two young girls,” a statement from the presidential palace said.

“President Karzai was saddened when he heard the news and designated a team to fully investigate the incident.”
