Afghan girl 'killed by ricocheted Nato bullet'

A two-year-old Afghan girl was killed when a warning shot from a Nato force soldier apparently ricocheted while more than a dozen Taliban were killed elsewhere, officials said yesterday.
Nato's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said it deeply regretted the death of the child in the southern province of Helmand on Friday.
An ISAF troop fired a single shot to stop a vehicle from coming too close to a military patrol, the force said in a statement. The bullet allegedly ricocheted and hit the child, although the incident was being investigated to establish what happened.
