Taliban militants attack Afghan government delegation at site of US killings
Taliban militants opened fire and killed one Afghan soldier who was part of a government delegation visiting one of the two villages where a U.S. soldier is suspected of killing 16 civilians.
(FOXNEWS/AP) Kandahar - The gunfire killed an Afghan soldier who was providing security for the delegation, said Gen. Abdul Razaq, the police chief for Kandahar province where the visit took place. Another Afghan soldier and a military prosecutor were wounded in the attack, he said.
The attack in Balandi village came as the Taliban vowed to kill and behead those responsible for the 16 Afghan civilians killed Sunday.
The delegation, which included two of President Hamid Karzai's brothers and other senior officials, was holding a memorial service in a mosque for victims when the shooting started.
