Afghan president Karzai: US to cease air strikes on residential areas | World news | guardian.co.uk
The Afghan government has hit out angrily at Nato over the raid, saying that it it violated a pact Kabul had with Washington over who would take the lead in “special operations”.
An inquiry into Wednesday’s attack in Lognar province found that it was the result of “a one-sided decision, and not co-ordinated with Afghan security forces”, President Karzai’s spokesman Aimal Faiz said on Saturday.
Investigators told Karzai that Afghan forces had surrounded the house prior to the American air strike. But US troops decided not to wait for them to try and flush out the alleged militant, opting instead for aerial bombardment.
