International troops opened fire on a bus carrying Afghan civilians today, killing four people and setting off anti-American protests by furious locals.
Witnesses said the bus, which was travelling in Kandahar province’s Zhari district, had pulled over to allow an American convoy to pass when gunfire broke out.
The shooting left another 18 people wounded, 12 of whom were taken to a military hospital.
Nato said it was investigating the incident and would not reveal the nationality of the troops involved.
