Karzai's cousin killed by NATO-led forces
Source: Pajhwok Afghan News

A cousin of President Hamid Karzai was shot dead by NATO-led troops during an overnight operation in southern Kandahar province, the provincial council chief said on Thursday.

Haji Yar Mohammad Khan was mistakenly killed as foreign troops pursued insurgents in the Karz area of Dand district, Ahmad Wali Karzai, half-brother of the president, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The governor's spokesman, Zalmay Ayubi, confirmed the incident which he said was being investigated. He gave no further details.

2. That's okay - he can be included in the apology given for the cold little boys
Perhaps, to save time and wasted effort, a blanket apology can be issued every week, say on Tuesday at 9:02 am . . . that should cover us, and give fleeting fealty to the concept of a potentially vengeful god. A moral "two-fer."

3. Is that the cousin from Wikileaks
shown to have made tens of millions of U.S. dollars "disappear"?
