Six children killed by insurgent rocket: Afghan govt

Kabul: Authorities say six children have been
killed in an insurgent rocket attack in northern Afghanistan.

The Afghan Interior Ministry said in a statement the
strike occurred on Sunday in the Ali Abad district of Kunduz
province.

It said the ministry strongly condemns the "un-Islamic
and inhumane action" by the insurgents.

Civilian deaths in NATO military operations are a major
source of contention between the alliance and Afghanistan`s
government, even though the United Nations says the insurgents
are responsible for most civilian deaths and injuries.
