Afghan President Hamid Karzai has accused NATO and U.S.-led forces of carelessly killing 90 civilians in airstrikes and artillery fire against Taleban militants over the last 10 days.

Mr. Karzai called Saturday for better coordination between foreign forces and Afghan authorities, saying NATO must work closer with Afghan authorities if it wants to succeed in the war against terror.

Also Saturday, in neighboring Pakistan, the army said a rocket hit a house in a border tribal area, killing nine civilians.

At the time, NATO forces in Afghanistan were conducting anti-Taleban operations in the region and reportedly killed as many as 60 insurgents in the attacks.

In other news, Estonia's military says two Estonian soldiers were killed and four others wounded in a rocket attack in southern Helmand province. Another coalition soldier was killed and two others wounded in clashes with insurgents in the same province.
