Afghanistan: Smaller US bombs kill civilians good
The incident was in the province of Kunar on Saturday, a day after about 10 civilians were killed when rockets fired by the Taliban at a US base landed on their homes.
The US-led coalition confirmed the military had dropped a precision-guided bomb on militants who had fired mortars on an outpost in the same area and at the same time.
"Four civilians, including women and children, were killed and five others were injured in a US-led air strike which was targeted at Taliban," deputy provincial police chief Abdul Sabour Allahyar told AFP. Link
