Afghan officials said that a boy under the age of eighteen was shot and killed by a United States Soldier on Monday in Kabul near an American airfield.
Authorities said the boy was carrying what appeared to be an automatic rifle near the Bagram Airfield. An American soldier in a watchtower warned the boy to stop but he ignored the warning.
Several people gathered at the site of the shooting to protest the killing of the boy. Officials said the incident is being investigated.
