Karzai issues 'last warning' to America

Afghan President Hamid Karzai called on the US military to avoid operations that kill Afghans, saying it was his "last warning" to Washington after many people died in an air strike.

Reacting to the alleged death of fighter cocks, hens, pigeons and cows along with many other people in an air strike in the southern province of Helmand, Karzai said such incidents were "murdering of Afghanistan's people and animals."

"President Hamid Karzai called this incident a great mistake and the murdering of Afghanistan's people and animal, and on behalf of the Afghan people gives his last warning to the US troops and US officials in this regard. Moreover, the president is upset at the fact that he does not enjoy the luxury of issuing another warning, in case such incident occurs again" his office said, adding that he "strongly condemned" the non-availability of warnings.

Update 31st May: Afghan President Hamid Karzai said the US-led Nato military in Afghanistan risks becoming a “master force” if aerial bombings which cause civilian casualties continue.
