"ISAF Commander Condemns Spin Boldak Murders
Two children and a woman were among those killed when a motorcycle loaded with explosives detonated in a crowd.
"The blatant murdering of Afghan civilians must stop, and the Taliban leadership needs to hold their own members accountable for their actions against the innocent," Allen said. ISAF service members will continue to work with Afghan security forces "to identify these enemies of the Afghan people, and hold them to account," the general added."
