Dozens of Afghan Civilians Killed in US Bombings
Dozens of civilians were killed Tuesday in a US bombing in Afghanistan. Witnesses say US warplanes bombed scores of homes during clashes with Taliban fighters in the western province of Farah. Villagers reportedly brought truckloads of bodies to their provincial governor’s office. The Red Cross says dozens of civilians were killed, including many women and children. Estimates of the dead range from thirty to as many as 150. The attack comes as Afghan President Hamid Karzai is in Washington for his first White House meeting sine President Obama took office.
