Karzai's cousin killed by NATO-led forces | Pajhwok Afghan News

KABUL(PAN): A cousin of President Hamid Karzai was shot dead by NATO-led troops during an overnight operation in southern Kandahar province, the provincial council chief said on Thursday.

Haji Yar Mohammad Khan was mistakenly killed as foreign troops pursued insurgents in the Karz area of Dand district, Ahmad Wali Karzai, half-brother of the president, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The governor's spokesman, Zalmay Ayubi, confirmed the incident which he said was being investigated. He gave no further details.
My initial reaction was that this was the rehearsal for the "removal from office" of President Karzai. However maybe we should keep him, at least for the time being. Better the Karzai you know than the one you don't.
