Afghans Say U.S. Bombing Killed 42 Civilians

President Hamid Karzai said at a news conference in Kabul that the Afghan people could no longer tolerate such casualties. “Five years on, it is very difficult for us to continue accepting civilian casualties,” he said. “It is becoming heavy for us; it is not understandable anymore.” ---
There have been several episodes recently in which civilians have been killed and foreign forces have been accused of indiscriminate or excessive force. --- That has prompted Afghan officials to warn that the good will of the Afghan people toward the government and the foreign military presence is wearing thin.
