US military admits role in killing of Afghan women

The US-led military command in Kabul admitted, after an earlier denial, that American forces killed three Afghan female civilians in February, and tried to cover up their deaths. There are reports that "Special Operations forces dug bullets out of the bodies of the women to hide the true nature of their deaths," and "that an Afghan-led team of investigators had found signs of evidence tampering at the scene, including the removal of bullets from walls near where the women were killed." One was a pregnant mother of 10 and another was a pregnant mother of six. (thanks, Antinous)
