ISAF airstrike kills two in Kunduz

Feb 15, 2012 - 14:47

KUNDUZ CITY (PAN): Two people were killed and a woman injured during an airstrike by foreign troops in the Khanabad district of northern Kunduz province, an official said on Wednesday.

International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) helicopters hit the Aqtash area, killing two brothers and injuring a woman, the district police chief, Col. Habib, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

A man and his son were detained during the operation, according to the police officer, who said the injured woman had been shifted to a health facility in the area.

He added the victims had no ties to insurgents and that the operation was carried without consultation with local officials.

Meanwhile, the NATO-led force said an Afghan and coalition force conducted the operation in search of a Taliban leader, blamed for attacks against civilians and Afghan forces.

“During the operation, two armed insurgents displayed hostile intent toward the security force,” ISAF said in response to an emailed query from Pajhwok. “The security force engaged, killing the two insurgents. One additional suspected insurgent was detained."

Resident Noor Ahmad said: “Several helicopters flew over the Laghmani village late on Tuesday night. In the morning, I learnt that two brothers were killed and as many others arrested by NATO-led troops.”
