NATO Airstrike Kills Seven Civilians

A statement issued by the Helmand provincial governor's office said seven people — two men, two women and three children — were killed when coalition forces fired on the suspects. Those killed were in another vehicle traveling near the targeted ones.

The use of force could not stand in greater contrast to the video call by the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers who planted 55 trees - for peace - at a school in Kabul. The ceremony was to usher in the Afghan New Year, and call attention to their hopes for a new way of living, a non-violent way of rebuilding the country

“We believe that it is morally unacceptable to allow military tactics to lead our response to human crises. The current foreign military assault on Libya is a step in the wrong direction, one that may lead the country to further instability, human suffering, and protracted violent conflict.“
