Foreign troops killed two women and a girl as they travelled by car in southern Afghanistan on Friday, a spokesman for the Afghan interior ministry told AFP.

"A foreign forces convoy opened fire on a vehicle coming the other way, thinking they were Taliban," said Zemarai Bashary. "Two women and one girl were killed and one other woman was wounded," he said.
