Afghanistan Shootings: Calls For Public Trial Of US Soldier Accused Over Civilian Deaths (Pictures)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 12, 2012


The term “terrorist” is not like 2+2=4. This depends upon time, situation and condition. The same person and incident could be terrorist for particular group/s and patriotic for another:

Afghan politicians are demanding that the US soldier allegedly involved in the killings of 16 civilians faces a public trial.

The call came in a statement from the lower house of the Afghanistan Parliament as the Taliban promised revenge for theattack that left nine children, three women and four men dead. At least five more were injured.

In a statement issued on Monday, the Afghan parliament said: “We seriously demand and expect that the government of the United States punish the culprits and try them in a public trial before the people of Afghanistan”, Sky News reported.

Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai described the attacks as “impossible to forgive”, saying in a statement:

“When Afghan people are killed deliberately by US forces this action is murder and terror and an unforgivable action.”

The Taliban’s promise of reprisals came in a statement on their website, accusing “sick-minded US savages” of the attack and vowing to “take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr.

“A large number from amongst the victims are innocent children, women and the elderly, martyred by the American barbarians who mercilessly robbed them of their precious lives and drenched their hands with their innocent blood,” the statement continued. Read the rest of this entry »

Militants unleashed rockets and mortars about 8 p.m. (15:30 GMT) and then tried unsuccessfully to storm the northern perimeter, officials said.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi told the Associated Press that its fighters attacked the base from two sides and fired more than 15 rockets. Read the rest of this entry »
