ISAF Troops Gun Down 4 Civilians in Afghanistan's Chaparhar

TEHRAN (FNA)- Four civilians were killed when the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) resorted to indiscriminate fire after coming under a bomb-gun attack in the Chaparhar district of Eastern Nangarhar province, an official said.

ISAF soldiers came under attack in Mano and Guldara areas, said town's administrative head Mohammad Siddique.

Four civilians, including two children, were killed and a fifth person sustained injuries when the troops resorted to fire in all directions, he told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Nangarhar police spokesman Col. Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal confirmed the incident, but had no further details.

Resident Aminullah said the foreign troops reacted in a knee-jerk manner after coming under attack and opened fire at civilians. He added the dead included two children, a boy and an adult.

Meanwhile, the Taliban said they had conducted two bomb attacks on international soldiers in the district, killing two of them.
