Another NATO Strike Kills 14 Afghan Civilians in Khost -- News from Antiwar.com

Another NATO Strike Kills 14 Afghan Civilians in Khost -- News from Antiwar.com
NATO air strikes in the Khost Province district of Shamal this morning killed at least 14 civilians including eight children. It was the second strike in the province this week, with a Tuesday attack killing as many as 11 other civilians.

NATO admitted to the first strike, but termed the slain “associated family members” of the Taliban they were trying to kill, and insisted some Taliban were killed. They have yet to comment on the new strike, though they did say they were investigating a third incident of civilian killings.
