NPR's Mike Shuster reports on civilian casualties in the US campaign against al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan. He visits a village called Niazi south of Kabul and the province of Khost. Townspeople in Niazi say dozens of innocent people were killed by American bombs. The Pentagon insists it had information that Taliban and al Qaeda members were in the homes that were struck, along with caches of Taliban weapons.
