The North Atlantic Treaty Organization apoligized Wednesday for the four Afghan civilian deaths on Monday night. NATO members fired at an approaching car in the eastern Afghanistan province of Khost.

Afghan President Harmis Karzai has publically said that he is frusterated with the high number of civilian deaths occuring because of the war. Peace Talks POSTPONED

On Wednesday, President Karzai decided to postpone his planned interntional peace conference to some time in may. Many are predicting this was done because Karzai felt there would be much tension between the U.S. and Afghanistan at the conference. Now that it is scheduled for May Karzai will visit the White House once before the confernce which he believes will relieve most of the tension.
