First news of casualties

Posted By: Erica

I am starting to get some reports of civilian casualties through my Afghan hosts. This morning they passed along the information of a man who lost his father over a year ago. Apparently the father was shopping in the local market of his town when a US convoy passed through. There was some sort of potential attack on the convoy and the man’s father was one of the civilians fatally caught in the crossfire. They have promised to send the man’s contact information along so that I can find out more.
