Afghanistan: Nato air strike ‘kills eight women in Laghman’

Source: BBC

At least eight women have died in a Nato air strike in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Laghman, local officials say.

Nato has conceded that between five and eight civilians died as it targeted insurgents, and offered condolences.

The remote region in which the strike took place is out of the reach of central government, correspondents say.

Earlier on Sunday, four soldiers with the Nato forces were killed in an attack by suspected Afghan police.

The attack in southern Zabul province brought to 51 the number of Nato troops killed in “insider attacks” this year, and came a day after two UK soldiers were killed at a checkpoint by a man in police uniform.  Read further.
