PEOPLE in Afghanistan have protested against the killing of civilians by the US-led forces.

Protesters took to the streets in the eastern province of Kunar on Monday to condemn the killing of ten Afghan civilians by American troops.

They also demanded that the perpetrators of the attack be brought to trial. The US army earlier claimed six Taliban militants were killed in the raid.

On Monday, three more civilians were killed and three others wounded by a roadside mine in Ghazni province.

Afghanistan has been under attack both by militants and foreign troops since the 2001 US-led invasion. Large numbers of civilians have lost their lives across the country.

Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai and tribal elders have repeatedly criticized the foreign troops for killing and injuring civilians.
