Video: Civilians die in Afghan raid

Witnesses dispute claims that coalition forces were attacked and had to retaliate.

    In Afghanistan, an eight-year-old girl and a woman have been killed in a shootout in Ghazni province.

    Coalition forces say a joint Nato-Afghan operation came under fire, and had to respond. A spokesman said two Taliban fighters were killed.

    But witnesses say there was no Talibans fighters, and coalition troops were not attacked.
