Afghan lawmakers angered by mounting civilian deaths have sent a sharp warning to US and NATO commanders, passing a motion for a military cease-fire and negotiations with the Taliban. The resolution, which NATO labeled "a warning shot" across its own bow, came as reports emerged Wednesday of 21 villagers killed in airstrikes, including several women and children. The proposal from the upper house of parliament, which also calls for a date to be set for the withdrawal of foreign troops, suggests that Afghan support for the five-and-a-half-year-old international military mission is crumbling amid a spate of civilian deaths.
