US apologizes for offensive leaflets dropped on ParwanA senior US commander has apologised after a series of controversial leaflets were dropped in Afghanistan.

The pamphlets, distributed on Tuesday in Parwan province, north of Kabul, were deemed "highly offensive" by Major General James Linder.

Images used showed a white dog, with a passage from the Quran used in Taliban banners superimposed on its side, fleeing from a lion. Above the picture of the lion and the dog, the handout implored people to report combatants operating in the region.

"Take back your freedom from the terrorist dogs and cooperate with coalition forces so they can target your enemy and eliminate them," it said.
'Highly offensive image'

In a statement, Linder said: "The design of the leaflets mistakenly contained an image highly offensive to both Muslims and the religion of Islam.

"I sincerely apologise. We have the deepest respect for Islam and our Muslim partners worldwide."
