Di Giuliano Battiston segnalo spesso gli articoli. E' uno dei rari giornalisti che passa molto tempo in Afghanistan e dunque ha il polso della situazione. Se n'è accorto anche Karzai e ieri il suo portavoce ha rilanciato via twitter l'articolo che Giuliano ha scritto in inglese per Ips. E' una sintesi di un lungo reportage uscito su il manifesto qualche giorno fa e che potete leggere integralmente qui.
(English text extrat): "The dusty cemetery in Saracha village hosts three new graves: small hills of soil shielding the bodies of Sahebullah, Wasihullah and Amanullah, three of the five boys and young men killed by an ISAF-NATO airstrike on late Friday, Oct. 4.
According to the firsts ISAF-NATO reports, the five were “enemy forces”, “insurgents”, killed with a “precision strike”. According to the white banner overlooking their graves, they are “martyrs”: innocent people killed by error. Wasihullah and Amanullah were brothers. They used to live in a house not far from the cemetery in Saracha village in the district of Beshud at the door of Jalalabad, the main city in the eastern province of Nangarhar. Their father, Qasim Hazrat Khan, shows IPS the place where they were killed, just behind his house".)
