Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai has accused NATO of killing eight children in an air strike on the country's territory. The incident adds to the already strained relationship between Afghanistan and its Western allies.
"President Hamid Karzai strongly condemns the aerial bombing by foreign troops that killed a number of children in Nejrab district," his office said in a statement on Thursday.
The Afghan leader has assigned a delegation to launch an all-out probe into the NATO bombing, which took place in the province of Kapisa on Wednesday.
NATO confirmed that "there has been a situation."
"A joint assessment team went there to identify the situation," a spokesman for the alliance said.
Abdul Hamid Erkin, police chief of Kapisa district, where the attack occurred, told Agence-France-Presse that foreign special forces carried out a raid on a house in Geyawa village in Nejrab district two nights ago.
"The next morning their plane carried out an airstrike on a house in the village, as a result of which seven children and one adult were martyred," he added.
