US bombs struck Karam a shepherd village

16 Oct 2001

The infamous Karam incident: US bombs struck Karam a shepherd village near Jalalabad. Channel 4 news reported of 30 fresh graves in Karam, and a BBC correspondent spoke to villagers who said 200 were dead. Taliban claimed 170 killed in this attack. Those killed in Karam were mostly women, children, and old people. Rumsfield calls death toll "ridiculous" but admitted that information on ground in Afghanistan was "imperfect."
