ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ At least 16 civilians were reported killed in an apparent shooting by U.S. service member in southern Afghanistan

Foreign Media reports monitored by our desk reveal that a US Soldier walked out of his base in southern Afghanistan on Sunday and started shooting Afghan civilians.

Provincial governor said people were both killed and wounded in the early morning shooting spree in Panjwai district of Kandahar province,

A resident of the area has told an AP reporter that 16 people were killed as the U.S. service member went into three different houses and started shooting. The villager said he had talked to the family members of the dead.

NATO forces spokesman Justin Brockhoff said a U.S. service member had been detained as the alleged shooter but did not provide details on the incident.

The shooting comes after weeks of tense relations between U.S. forces and their Afghan hosts following the burning of Qurans and other religious materials at an American base. Though U.S. officials apologized and said the burning was an accident, the incident sparked violent protests and attacks that killed some 30 people. Six U.S. troops have been killed in attacks by their Afghan colleagues since the Quran burnings came to light.Every incident against the Muslims is an accident for Nato and for US.

    Just watch how quickly this news item will be buried by so called Western free media!

    I wonder how one man could have planned and carried such an attack? Even American puppet Karzai said “American forces” had entered the houses in Panjwai, but at another point he said the killings were the act of an individual soldier. Why this double-talk? What is he hiding? I wonder where are the Human Rights Champions now? HRW? Amnestly International? UNHCR? Their silence is deafening.

    One US soldier, or a group of US soldiers? Is the Staff Sargeant taking the responsibility for a group?

    Neighbors and relatives of the dead said they had seen a group of U.S. soldiers arrive at their village in Kandahar’s Panjwayi district at about 2 a.m., enter homes and open fire.

    An Afghan man who said his children were killed in the shooting spree accused soldiers of later burning the bodies.

    Afghan officials also gave varying accounts of the number of shooters involved. Karzai’s office released a statement quoting a villager as saying “American soldiers woke my family up and shot them in the face.”

    Minister of Border and Tribal Affairs Asadullah Khalid said a U.S. soldier had burst into three homes near his base in the middle of the night, killing a total of 16 people including 11 people in the first house.

    The ISAF spokesman said the U.S. soldier “walked back to the base and turned himself into U.S. forces this morning,” adding there had been no military operations taking place in the area when the incident occurred.
