‘US strike killed 95 children in Afghanistan’

Wed, 13 May 2009 15:52:13 GMT

About 150 civilians were killed on Tuesday when US warplanes dropped bombs on two villages last week

Afghan officials reveal that 95 children are among the civilians killed in a US-led strike that is surrounded with the controversy over use of white phosphorous.

Afghan lawmaker Obaidullah Helali who headed a delegation investigating the booming in the western province of Farah confirmed the children’s massacre on such a large scale.

The delegation also delivered condolence payments to the victims, ordered by President Hamid Karzai.

Nearly 150 civilians were killed last Tuesday when US warplanes dropped bombs on two villages in the Bala Baluk district in the western province of Farah.

Human rights and medical officials also accused the US forces of using flesh-eating chemical white phosphorus during the lethal strikes.

The attack also sparked days of protests in Kabul and other major cities across Afghanistan.

President Karzai has demanded a halt to Washington’s airstrikes in his country following the deadly incident.

Washington says it will not stop airstrikes in Afghanistan which have frequently led to civilian casualties across the violence-wracked country.

Despite the rising anti-American sentiment across the conflict-torn country, US President Barack Obama has assigned 21,000 more soldiers to the Afghanistan-based contingents.

The killing of civilians by US-led forces continues seven and half years after the US invaded the country to allegedly destroy Taliban and al-Qaeda and bring stability to the volatile region.
