Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Friday condemned US troops for killing a four-year-old boy in the southern province of Helmand, in an incident set to add fresh strain to troubled relations between Washington and Kabul.

"We condemn the killing of this boy in the strongest terms," presidential spokesman Aimal Faizi told AFP. "We have been calling for the complete end of military operations in residential areas."
