The Widow Received a Sheep

The widow of an Afghanistan man shot by Canadian soldiers received a letter of condolence and a sheep. The official Canadian government investigation cleared the soldiers of any wrong doings, without talking to any eye-witness, nor examining the targeted vehicle the dead was riding.

The Canadian defence minister was very sympathetic and caring for the family. In a March 20, 2006 briefing he noted, 'in accordance with local custom, we also offered a sheep to the family of the deceased to express sincere regrets.'
