KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — The explosion that killed three Afghan children last week was the work of the Taliban and not Canada’s fault, say military officials who admit they’re still struggling to understand the outburst of anti-Canadian sentiment touched off by the tragedy.
Forensic analysis of fragments from the bomb that killed the three young boys determined it was likely an old munition, perhaps left over from the Soviet occupation, that may have been fashioned into a booby trap, officials said.
