NATO Operation Killed 8 Children

December 28, 2009 - According to Afghan president Hamid Karzaï, ten civilians, including eight children, were killed last Saturday in an airstrike by NATO forces in the province of Kunar (a mountainous region of eastern Afghanistan).

On Sunday, a NATO spokesman affirmed that there were no reports of civilian deaths in the area.

But according to a senior Western military official (who did not want to be named), it could be an operation by the US Special Forces, conducted independently of NATO and coalition forces.
