Afghan President Hamid Karzai Thursday condemned as unacceptable a NATO air strike that killed 18 civilians and would cut short a trip to Beijing to return home, his office said.
"Attacks by NATO that cause life and property losses to civilians under no circumstances could be justified and are not acceptable," Karzai said of the attack Wednesday in Logar province south of Kabul.
