A U.S. soldier went on a shooting rampage outside Kandahar city early Sunday, killing up to 18 civilians, Afghan officials said, in yet another devastating blow to Americans’ battered image in the country after 10 years of warfare.

The incident was certain to harden anti-U.S. sentiment that flared into deadly riots last month after U.S. troops burned copies of the Koran at a base north of Kabul. American officials have said the action was a mistake and offered profuse apologies, but some Afghans have brushed aside the apologies and called for harsh punishment of those involved.

The shooting early Sunday took place in Panjwayi district outside Kandahar city, in a village called Alekozo. The American soldier in question apparently slipped away from his base before dawn and acted alone.

The NATO force issued a terse statement saying the shooter was in custody and the incident would be investigated by the U.S. military and Afghan authorities.

Haji Mohammad Ehsan, deputy head of Kandahar’s provincial council, put the number of dead at 18. Javed Faisal, a spokesman for the Kandahar media center, said “up to 15” people had been killed, and several others wounded. The conflicting casualty counts could not immediately be reconciled.

The Western military statement confirmed there had been Afghan casualties, but did not say how many. It called the episode “deeply regrettable.”

The soldier’s motive was unknown, but relations between the U.S. military and ordinary Afghans have been highly fraught since the Koran-burning riots, which exacerbated longstanding tensions over civilian casualties and night raids led by U.S. special forces.

During more than a week of nationwide protests over the burning of the holy books that left at least 30 people dead, six U.S. service members were shot and killed by Afghan soldiers or, in the case of two of them, a worker at Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry. Two of the American troops who were killed were deployed in Kandahar province.

The pressures of war..... I'm sure the "civilians" weren't as innocent as the news portrays them to be.

So you mean to tell me those innocent citizens did nothing wrong? Please, they probably looked suspicious or something.

GOOD. Their asshole soldiers keep killing our men for whatever reasons even though we're trying to help those worthless fucks. Now they know not to fuck with us.

I'm all for helping poorer nations but I have no respect for them when they're killing their Allies, our boys. Fuck you.

another dumbass punk comment. it is not good when someone kills innocent people, especially KIDS u fucking punk. i bet u keep ur ignorant comments to urself in the real world because ur too much of a bitch boy to confront anyone. some of these "soldiers" need to be stripped of their association w the military and punished to the fullest extent possible.
