Democracy Now: NATO Forces Kill Relative of Afghan Lawmaker


The U.S.-led NATO force meanwhile has killed the relative of an Afghan lawmaker in an overnight raid. The lawmaker, Safia Sidiqi, says soldiers broke into her home in the middle of the night without warning. The victim was carrying a gun thinking the intruders were thieves. France meanwhile has admitted to killing four Afghan civilians in an attack earlier this month. The French military says the victims were accidentally killed when its forces fired missiles at Afghan militants.
