NATO: Afghan Airstrike Killed 6 Civilians

NATO has acknowledged that an airstrike in the southern Helmand province of Afghanistan killed six civilians on Friday. The strike was intended to target Taliban forces that had launched an attack in the area. Instead, six members of a family were hit. The provincial spokesman said that they are deeply sorry for the civilian deaths. NATO is also planning an apology. Another incident in the northwest of Afghanistan has reportedly left 14 civilians dead, though no apology has been announced.
