(Afghanistan 5) A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

NATO aircraft opened fire on hijacked fuel trucks in Kunduz, Afghanistan before dawn on Friday September 4 2009, killing as many as 90 people in an incident that could trigger a backlash against Western troops. NATO initially said it believed the casualties were all Taliban fighters, but later acknowledged that large numbers of civilians were being treated in hospitals in the area.

90 victims died and numerous ones were injured.

Below are just a few of the injured.
