Socialist Worker

Afghanistan

Issue No. 1881

Nine children in Afghanistan died last weekend after two US attack jets opened fire on their village of Hutala in southern Afghanistan. All that's left of them is their shoes and woven hats lying strewn on the ground.

Sarwar Khan, whose sons aged eight and ten were killed, said, 'All the time the Americans are making these mistakes. What kind of Al Qaida are they? Look at their little shoes and hats. Are they terrorists?'
