Insurgents killed the Vice Mayor of Kandahar during prayers at a local mosque. In neighboring Khost Province, NATO troops fired on a car with 12 people inside, killing two insurgents. The other 10 were civilians, including a 12 year old boy. The terrorist attacks in Kandahar are aimed at competent officials. By killing then, the Taliban hopes to dissuade others from filling their place, thus leaving a void of competency, which they hope to fill. However, the inadvertent killing of civilians is the latest in a string, which has damaged perceptions of NATO in the region.
