U.S.-LED AIR RAID KILLS 12 CIVILIANS, 20 TALIBAN IN AFGHAN SOUTH

UPDATE: It appears the 12 dead have become 25 dead in a matter of minutes. Three of them were babies.
Suspected Taliban militants attacked police posts in southern Afghanistan, sparking clashes and NATO airstrikes that left 25 civilians and 20 militants dead, a senior police officer said today.

UPDATE: To be fair, the alertnet.org story did say 12 members of "a" family were killed. Apparently the other 13 were neighbors. Sorry if I led you astray.
