PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): The provincial council (PC) chief for central Logar province on Monday accused the American forces of killing four civilians and injuring another 15 after a roadside bomb ripped through one of their vehicles near the provincial capital, Pul-iAlam, on Sunday.

Hasibullah Stanikzai told Pajhwok Afghan News the US forces opened indiscriminate firing at civilians after the blast in Honi Saydan area, causing civilian causalities.

The foreign troops also entered local residences and dislodged some civilians from their homes, he said, an allegation confirmed by a resident of Honi Saydan village, Sayed Baryalai.

 “A roadside bomb hit US forces convoy on Sunday here and after the explosion, the foreign soldiers opened fire at innocent people and some were killed.”

The governor’s spokesman, Salim Saleh, confirmed the bomb attack, but said he was unaware of civilian causalities.

US forces could not be reached for comment about the incident.
