Afghan president orders probe into US action

President Hamid Karzai has ordered a probe into allegations that more than 30 civilians died in a U.S.-led bombing in western Afghanistan.
Karzai said in a statement that Afghan and U.S.-led coalition officials headed to Farah province Wednesday to investigate the incident.
Local officials say civilians died during bombing runs ordered by U.S. forces late Monday in Farah.
Civilian deaths have caused increasing friction between the Afghan and U.S. governments, and Karzai has long pleaded with American officials to reduce the number of civilian casualties in their operations.
Karzai says he will raise the issue again with President Barack Obama during their planned meeting on Wednesday.
