Dozens of angry Afghans threw stones at police after a convoy of foreign troops killed one civilian and wounded four more in the capital, Kabul, on Friday, the Kabul police chief and witnesses said.

Seething resentment against the presence of some 65,000 foreign troops is growing in Afghanistan after scores of Afghan civilians have been killed in a series of mistaken air strikes this year.

Witnesses said the troops opened fire on a minibus.

At least four Afghan civilians have been killed by foreign soldiers in Afghanistan this year in what international forces call “escalation of force procedures” after their vehicles approached too close to troop convoys.
