"NATO forces launched an airstrike yesterday against a group of private security guards who were under contract to protect military supply convoys along an eastern Afghan highway, killing one of the guards, Afghan police and the company said. NATO confirmed that an airstrike was called in by forces in Ghazni province, but it said its initial reports suggested that the strike was on 'suspected insurgents.'"
