NATO confirms killings of Afghan civilians in German troops' attack

The NATO-led force in Afghanistan confirmed civilians were killed and injured in an air strike in northern Afghanistan called in by German troops, the force said in a statement on Tuesday.

In previous statements, the force has said it believed civilians were harmed, but had not spelled out clearly whether they were killed.

Subsequent review has led ISAF to confess that civilians were killed and injured in the strike, NATO said in the statement.
