Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

10 killed in Afghanistan anti-US rally

10 killed in Afghanistan anti-US rally
AFGHANISTAN - At least ten Afghan protesters have been killed and fifty others wounded during an anti-US rally in northern Afghanistan following the killings of four Afghan civilians by the US-led forces.

Afghan officials say more than 2,000 angry Afghans took part in the Wednesday protests, which turned violent, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The protests come following the killing of four civilians, including two women, by US-led forces in Taloqan city in Afghanistan's Takhar province on Tuesday night.

During Wednesday's protest in Taloqan, the demonstrators carried the bodies of the four dead in the city, chanting anti-US slogans.

The angry Afghan demonstrators were also calling on US-led foreign forces to leave the South Asian country.

In May, a US-led airstrike in Afghanistan's Kunar province killed nine children, aged between seven and nine, who were collecting firewood.

Following the May incident, the US and NATO commander in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, announced that Washington was “deeply sorry” for the airstrike, adding that “these deaths should never have happened.”

Thousands of Afghan people have so far lost their lives as a result of military operations by the foreign troops since the 2001 US-led invasion of Afghanistan.

Afghan officials, including President Hamid Karzai, have repeatedly condemned the persisting killing of civilians by US-led troops in the country and urged its immediate halt.
