ISAF to retrain troops on civilian casualties

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai

The Nato-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) will retrain its troops in Afghanistan on avoiding civilian casualties by December 5, President Hamid Karzai’s office said on Tuesday.

Karzai’s office quoted a letter from ISAF commander General John Allen as saying he had issued orders “for all units to conduct retraining on our methods of employing force against insurgents while protecting Afghan civilians.”

ISAF could not immediately confirm the letter.

Karzai last week accused ISAF of killing seven people including six children in an air strike in Zhari district of the southern province of Kandahar.

The issue of civilian casualties is highly sensitive in Afghanistan and has fuelled tensions between Karzai and his Western backers.
