'Death to Canada,' some Afghan protesters chant

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

This certainly does not bode well for Canada and Canadians, with many calling for a troop pullout after 2 children were killed, by what Afghani's say was by Canadian Troops.

Protesters accused Canadian and American soldiers of killing the two during raids overnight Tuesday on houses in Senjaray, a community on the outskirts of Kandahar city. It is in the Zhari district, a hotbed of Taliban activity west of the city.

About 500 protesters shut down the main highway out of Kandahar city about 7 a.m. local time with some chanting "death to Canada" and "death to foreigners" and calling on foreign troops to leave the country.

Canadian military officials have denied involvement in the raids by both their own soldiers and NATO's.
