Chanting “Death to America!” and weeping as they prayed, hundreds of Kabul university students marched on Sunday in protest against U.S. air strikes last week that Afghan officials say killed more than 100 civilians.

Washington has acknowledged that some civilians were killed during a battle in which its aircraft bombed Afghan villages.

U.S. forces have not said how many people they believe were killed and have blamed Taliban insurgents for firing from the rooftops of homes where civilians sheltered.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai says more than 100 and perhaps as many as 130 civilians were killed in air strikes in western Farah province during the battle. Provincial officials say villagers have drawn up lists with names of 147 dead.

If confirmed, such a toll would make it the deadliest incident for civilians since U.S. forces launched their fight against the Taliban in 2001
