Afghan official: Civilians were murdered by a group of US soldiers
According to him, the murder was premeditated and planned in advance.
According to the General, he has repeatedly asked the US Command to let him meet the Staff Sergeant who, according to NATO, had single-handedly killed 16 people and wounded 7 others, mostly women and children.
However, he was denied access to the accused soldier. Earlier, a commission of Afghan MPs conducted their own investigation in Kandahar and found that the massacre was in fact carried out by a group of US soldiers.
