KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (Reuters) - U.S. troops killed four Afghan policemen and wounded another after mistaking them for militants during an operation in southern Afghanistan, a senior local official said on Tuesday.

Separately, on Teusday three Afghans working for an American security firm USPI, were hurt one possbily killed by a road side bomb in Kandahar, provincial governor, Assadullah Khalid said.

He had no details about the attack that happened on a main dirt road outside Kandahar city, but said there were no foreigners on board the vehicle.

The U.S. military in Kabul said it had no information about police's killings, the second of its kind this month.

1. Going so well there, isn't it?
Condi is holding up Afghanistan as a model of what Iraq will become.

2. Whoops! The Pentagon will claim it as yet another victory.
Of course, they will claim they were "terrorists" disguised as police, or police dressed like terrorists. I guess their super-duper high-tech "Terrorist Detector" sets were tuned in to Rush.
