US-led raid kills 6 Afghan civilians

A NATO raid in Afghanistan's northern Konduz province has left six civilians dead and 11 more injured, a Press TV correspondent reports.

Provincial officials said the fatalities of the Monday raid include a woman and a child. They further added that US-led forces took four other civilians with themselves.

The Western military alliance is already under fire over the rising civilian death toll in the war-torn Afghanistan.

According to the United Nations, more than 1,200 Afghan civilians were killed during the first half of 2010.
