ISAF: Kapisa civilian deaths being probed (Video)

Feb 14, 2012 - 14:06

KABUL (PAN): A NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) spokesman on Monday said an investigation was underway into the death of eight children after an airstrike in central Kapisa province.

ISAF spokesman Brig. Gen. Carsten Jacobson told a press conference in Kabul that at this stage of the assessment they could not confirm or deny the deaths caused by the airstrike in Nijrab district on Wednesday.

Of the bombing came following an airstrike in eastern Kunar province, killing seven civilians, Jacobson said the deaths in Kapisa might have been linked to insurgent operations in the area.
