British forces have been accused of killing four boys at close range in an operation in Afghanistan.
A 12-year-old boy and three teenagers are alleged to have been shot dead as they were drinking tea during a counter-insurgency operation in Afghanistan. Witnesses claim the operation was lead by British soldiers, with defence secretary Philip Hammond now being asked to launch an investigation. Lawyers for the victims' family claim the four boys appeared to have been “deliberately targeted at close range”, according to the Guardian newspaper. They have been named as Fazel Mohammed, 18, Naik Mohammed, 16, Mohammed Tayeb, 14 and Ahmed Shah, 12. A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence last night confirmed it had received a letter outlining the allegations from a firm of British lawyers.

I will call this as BS
First, even in Western culture the 18yo is not a boy, he is a man. In Afghan culture the 16 and 14yo are both men. So three men and a lad sitting around drinking tea? In Afghanistan?
