Update on Jalalabad Incident

Reports are now saying that 16 civilians were killed in the Sunday attack there, according to the New York Times. 24 civilians were also wounded. After a suicide car bombing, US troops opened fire. It remains unclear how many people were killed by which.

“When we parked our vehicle, when they passed us, they opened fire on our vehicle,” said Mohammad Ishaq, a 15-year-old who was hit by a bullet in his arm and another in his ear. “It was a convoy of three American Humvees. All three Humvees were firing around.”
