Hundreds of Afghans took to the streets to protest against the killing of 10 civilians, mostly teenagers, in a raid by foreign forces, which heightened tensions between the Afghan government and NATO. KABUL The head of a presidential delegation investigating the deaths of 10 people in eastern Afghanistan concluded Wednesday that civilians — including schoolchildren — were killed in an attack involving foreign troops, disputing NATO reports that the dead were insurgents. Asadullah Wafa, a senior adviser to President Hamid Karzai, told The Associated Press by telephone that eight schoolchildren between the ages of 12 and 14 were among the dead discovered in a village house in the Narang district of Kunar province. A NATO official has said initial reports from troops involved in the fighting on Sunday indicated that those killed were insurgents — all young males.
