More than 30 civilians were killed in a Nato airstrike in southern Afghanistan yesterday, sparking an angry response from the Afghan government.

The airstrike – in which four women and a child are known to have died – brought a personal apology from General Stanley McChrystal, the Nato commander in Afghanistan, to the president, Hamid Karzai.

It added to growing anger over the number of civilian casualties in the Afghan conflict, and came hours after Karzai had urged Nato to do more to protect civilians.

In a statement, the Afghanistan council of ministers condemned the airstrike as “unjustifiable”.

The cabinet said initial reports indicated that Nato had fired on a convoy of three vehicles, killing at least 33 people and injuring a further 12.
