"We Shot An Amazing Number Of People"
"International troops opened fire on a bus carrying Afghan civilians today, killing four people and setting off anti-American protests by furious locals.
Witnesses said the bus, which was travelling in Kandahar province's Zhari district, had pulled over to allow an American convoy to pass when gunfire broke out.
The shooting left another 18 people wounded, 12 of whom were taken to a military hospital."
"Shooting broke out as the third or fourth American vehicle went by, he said, with gunfire coming from the direction of the convoy.
'They just suddenly opened fire, I don't know why. We had been stopped and after that I don't know what happened,' he said.
Within hours, scores of Afghans had blocked the main highway out of Kandahar city with burning tires, chanting 'Death to America,' and calling for the downfall of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, himself a Kandahar native."
