US airstrike kills 30 civilians in eastern Afghanistan: Witnesses

 

Reports coming out of Afghanistan suggest that fresh US airstrikes in the country’s eastern Logar province have killed around 30 people.

At least 28 civilians, including women and children, were killed on Wednesday morning after American aircraft bombed a house near the provincial capital of Puli Alam, eyewitnesses told Press TV.

Meanwhile, local residents told Pajhwok Afghan News that all of the victims were ordinary residents of Khost province living in the area.

“There were 28 to 32 people living in the house. Only one man of the family members who had gone somewhere else survived,” a resident was quoted as saying by the Afghan news outlet.

Salim Saleh, the governor’s spokesman, confirmed the US attack but said the exact death toll was not clear.
