Afghan protesters say NATO raid killed 4 civilians

Afghan officials say more than 1,000 people are protesting in a northern city against an overnight NATO raid that killed four. The protesters say those killed were civilians.
NATO says it killed four insurgents in the operation outside of Taloqan city in Takhar province. The coalition says the combined Afghan-NATO force was careful to ensure the safety of civilians.
But Takhar Gov. Abdul Jabar Taqwa says no one in his government was informed about the raid and that NATO acted unilaterally. Military and police officials could not be reached for comment.
During Wednesday's protest in Taloqan, the demonstrators carried the bodies of the four dead _ two women and two men _ into the city. They shouted insults at the Afghan president and the U.S. as they went.
