President Obama on Tuesday called the killing of Afghan civilians, allegedly by a U.S. soldier, outrageous and unacceptable, and he said he is heartbroken over the incident.
"The United States takes this as seriously as if it was our own citizens and our own children who were murdered," Obama said to reporters at the White House. He said he directed the Pentagon to spare no effort in conducting a full investigation of what happened, and pledged that "we will follow the facts wherever they lead us."
A unidentified U.S. soldier is accused of shooting nine children, three women and four men in a house-to-house rampage in villages near his combat outpost in southern Afghanistan on Sunday.
