|WELLINGTON， March 21 (Xinhua) -- The New Zealand military and government covered up a botched raid by special forces that left six civilians dead and 15 wounded in Afghanistan in 2010， according to a book released Tuesday.
The book， "Hit and Run，' by investigative journalists Nicky Hager and Jon Stephenson， detailed the response of New Zealand's Special Air Service (SAS) to the first New Zealander dying in combat in August 2010.
This included an SAS attack on two isolated villages in Afghanistan's Baghlan province where they mistakenly believed they would find the insurgents who had attacked a New Zealand patrol 19 days earlier in neighboring Bamiyan.
SAS officers commanded and led the attack， supported by U.S. and Afghan forces.
The insurgent group was not there， but at least 21 civilians were killed and injured many of them women and children and the SAS and U.S. forces burned and blew up about a dozen houses， said the book.
The SAS also failed to help the wounded， it claimed.
The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) and government tried to keep the civilian casualties a secret and had repeatedly denied reports of innocents killed in the raids.
Information in the book was given by present and former New Zealand， Afghan and U.S. military personnel and had been cross-checked， while people from the Afghan villages that were raided had also assisted， said the authors.
The authors issued a statement calling for a full and independent inquiry into the actions described in the book， which， if confirmed， would seriously breach international law.
"Whether or not the public agreed with New Zealand sending troops to the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan， there is no doubt that what the SAS did was wrong and betrayed the defense force's core values of courage， commitment and integrity，" they said.
"All this happened in New Zealand's name， in an operation commanded by New Zealanders， by people whose salaries are paid for by the New Zealand public. Our soldiers' actions， and those of their U.S. allies， alienated locals and led many to join or support the insurgents and was a key factor in the Taliban gaining complete control of the area."
The NZDF issued a statement late Tuesday saying it stood by a statement it made on April 20， 2011.
"As the 2011 statement says， following the operation， allegations of civilian casualties were made. These were investigated by a joint Afghan Ministry of Defense， Ministry of the Interior and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) assessment team， in accordance with ISAF procedures，" it said.
"The investigation concluded that the allegations of civilian casualties were unfounded，" it said.
"The NZDF is confident that New Zealand personnel conducted themselves in accordance with the applicable rules of engagement."
Despite the fact that it is now not as warm as a planet Dodgers Andre Ethier Jersey , the distant object dubbed WISE J0304 2705, may have spent the better element of its youth as a searing -hot, roiling star, lighting up the Universe! The new study describing this quite uncommon Y Dwarf of the team has been accepted for publication by the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (London).
At present Dodgers Adrian Gonzalez Jersey , the temperature of J0304-2705 is a just 100-150 degrees Celsius, which is somewhere between that of the Earth and Venus. On the other hand, the thing reveals signs of a potential historical origin, which indicates that a major alteration has taken place. Before Yasmani Grandal Jersey , J0304-2705 would have been just as seething hot as any star-- and it may have stayed that toasty for many millions of years!
Y Dwarfs are a recently recognized category of objects, and J0304 2705 is one of its members that are newly discovered. Truly, these peculiar celestial bodies are members of the coolest stellar temperature type as yet identified by astronomers, plus they have just recently been attached to the very end OBAFGKMLT of the recognizable stellar sequence. For historical reasons Yasiel Puig Jersey , this sequence isn't in alphabetical order, but rather follows a constant drop in temperature from O to T. Even though its temperature is not much warmer than that of our own rocky planet, J0304-2705 is most likely not rugged at all, but is rather an enormous ball of gas similar to our own Solar System's gas-giant Jupiter.
Stars And Planets Are Born!
All stars are born when a heavy Sergio Romo Jersey , dense pocket of substance embedded within the close folds of a giant, billowing, freezing, and dark interstellar molecular cloud Scott Kazmir Jersey , collapses beneath gravitation being squeezed by the merciless and strong weight of its own. Such enormous clouds, dust and composed of gas, haunt our Milky Way Galaxy in huge amounts, swirling ghostlike although Space. These floating clouds will be the peculiar Sandy Koufax Jersey , cold cradles of infant stars. Things must get very chilly to get a hot baby star to sparkle its way to existence, although it may seem counterintuitive.
Stars are tremendous, searing-hot, seething sectors of primarily hydrogen gas. Indeed Mike Piazza Jersey , 98% of a star consists of this lightest-- and abundant--atomic element! All of another atomic elements that may exist in the hell -like furnace compose less if its entire mass!
Dazzling infant stars are encircled by protoplanetary accretion discs that whirl around them. Infant planets are born from these accretion disks--made up of gas and very fine and nourishing dust particles. The tiny motes of dust that dance about within the swirling discs have become sticky, and readily merge with one another when they collide, forming increasingly bigger and larger bodies--from pebble size, to boulder size Maury Wills Jersey , to mountain size, to asteroid size, to planet size. The bigger primordial planet- they bump into one another in a just forming planetary system, uniting together to give rise the olympian children of the stars that they orbit Kirk Gibson Jersey , and .
