KABUL: A Nato air strike killed a family of eight, including six children, in their home in Afghanistan's eastern province of Paktia, Afghan officials said Sunday.
"Eight people, a man, his wife and six of their children, are dead. It was an air strike conducted by Nato. This man had no connection to the Taliban or any other terrorist group," local government spokesman Rohullah Samoon told AFP.
A senior security official in Kabul confirmed the incident, while Nato's military said it was investigating the claim.
