"Seconds after the Afghan president's brothers stepped outside the village mosque where they had been attending a memorial ceremony Tuesday for 16 civilians allegedly killed by a U.S. soldier, the Taliban opened fire. An Afghan army soldier protecting the two men -- part of a high-level government delegation that was visiting one of the two villages where the killings took place -- was shot in the head and died. The visitors escaped in their cars unharmed, but two other Afghan army personnel were wounded in the 20-minute gun battle that ensued." (03/13/12)
