Taliban Vows Revenge
Says it will “take revenge from the invaders and the savage murderers for every single martyr.”
They added “American savages” committed the “blood-soaked and inhumane crime.”
“If the perpetrators of this massacre were in fact mentally ill then this testifies to yet another moral transgression by the American military because they are arming lunatics in Afghanistan who turn their weapons against the defenseless Afghans without giving a second thought,” the statement said.
Afghan officials reported nine of the 16 victims were children and three were women. They said some of the bodies were also found to be charred.
