A NATO airstrike killed 10 Afghan civilians, including five children, in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday, local officials said.
The strike, in the Shigal district of Kunar province, was confirmed by NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), though a spokesman said it could not confirm civilian casualties.
"Foreign forces carried out the attack by themselves without informing us," Kunar Governor Fazlullah Wahidi told Reuters.
Four Taliban fighters were also killed in the strike and five civilians wounded, he said.
The strike occurred in the village of Chawgam and the 10 dead civilians were from two local families, Wahidi said.
A spokesman for ISAF, Major Adam Wojack, said he was aware of an incident which "matched" the report from Kunar, but he could not confirm casualty numbers.
Biggest strike in last years included staff at state-run banks and mines as well as factory, construction and transport workers
