At least 3 civilians were killed and 4 others were wounded on Thursday morning in southern Kandahar province, local officials said.
The incident happened at 09:00 am local time when a traffic accident happened in Kandahar city and Isaf forces on the way were confused and started firing in the area, a Kandahar police official told TOLOnews. Isaf has not yet commented.
Kandahar police officials said the wounded were rushed to a nearby hospital in the city. The latest incident happened as the Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday condemned the US troops' killing of civilians in strong terms.
After the Der Spiegel, the German news organisation, published three photos showing US troops posing next to Afghan civilians' bodies, the Rolling Stone magazine published 18 of the same pictures out of 150 obtained by the magazine.
"They killed our youth for entertainment, they killed our elders for entertainment," President Karzai said.
