KABUL - Afghan President Hamid Karzai angrily warned NATO forces fighting in his country on Tuesday that they risked becoming seen as an "occupying force" if they did not stop attacking Afghan homes with air strikes as they hunt insurgents.

"If they don't stop air strikes on Afghan homes, their presence in Afghanistan will be considered as an occupying force and against the will of the Afghan people," Karzai told a news conference in Kabul.
