Nato admits civilians killed in afghan airstrike could have been fighters – but won’t confirm their identities

It is understood the UN has written to the government in Kabul requesting names and photographs of suspected dead.

Afghan authorities have also handed over a number of names to relatives of the Afghan soldiers killed by the bombs, a senior Pentagon official said.

‘For the life of me I can’t understand why anyone would go through with this, I mean it’s not right,’ said one retired US colonel, who served in a brigade that served in the war in the southern province of Helmand.

‘It’s outrageous. It’s very clear the Americans should have known better.’

President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are also due to meet Afghan officials as they examine the incident.

The US and NATO deny they knew about the strikes – something President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are expected to discuss as they investigate the attack – despite Mr Obama insisting he ‘could not be sure’ who carried out the attack.

‘We do not yet know the full extent of the strikes. We are still conducting a full review of the mission to determine what happened and the outcome,’ a Pentagon spo카지노 사이트kesperson told The Independent.

A top American official told reporters: ‘What we do know, and what I have been told, is that there’s been no indication to the US government that anybody had ever been involved in the strike바카라 or had the intent to harm civilians.’

Mr Obama vowed to hold those responsible to account as he tried to rally the world to join troops in Afghanistan.

But Nato will not reveal the names of those who were killed or injured, with a senior US official telling the Wall Street Journal there could be further strike더킹카지노s in the future.
