    A French military spokesman confirmed that deaths occurred when the troops returned fire, but said that the troops had not realised that there were civilians in the area.

    "We are expecting a lot of outrage from Afghan people and officials in response to this incident," Abdel Hamid said.

    "Attacks like this, where civilians die, are perfect for Taliban propaganda," she added.
