At least 24 security workers at a construction site in Afghanistan's Ghazni province have been killed in US air raids.The deputy governor of the province southwest of the capital Kabul called Sunday's incident a "brutal attack". A provincial government source told the Reuters news agency that US-led forces had called in an air raid after fighters attacked several posts operated by the security company that guards the road construction project. The US military said it called in the aerial bombardment after its forces came under fire, but cannot at this time confirm the identity of the victims. The latest air raids come just days after the Afghan government said an attack by US-led forces killed nine Afghan soldiers in the southeastern province of Khost.
Hundreds of civilians have been killed in operations by Nato and US-led international forces this year, according to Afghan officials and aid groups.

The British Ambassador in Kabul has been overheard describing the puppet Karzai regime as doomed
"the presence, notably military, of the coalition is a part of the problem, not the solution.Foreign forces are assuring the survival of a regime, which, without them, would quickly crumble. In doing so, they are slowing down and complicating an eventual end to the crisis (incidentally, probably a dramatic one)."
