Afghan commission says US troops took fire first
31. August 2008, 06:52

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - A newly released report says an Afghan army commander told a government investigative commission that U.S. and Afghan troops came under fire first from an Afghan village where the commission says scores of civilians were killed.

The commander told the commission that shots were fired from Azizabad in the early morning hours of Aug. 22.

But the report, released by the office of President Hamid Karzai on Sunday, does not specify who fired the shots.

The commission found that 90 people were killed in the Azizabad operation, a finding backed by a preliminary U.N. report. The report also says all the victims were civilian.

The U.S.-led coalition maintains that 25 militants and five civilians died. The U.S. is investigating.
