Airstrike, Suicide Bombings Leave Dozens Dead in Afghanistan
(KABUL, Afghanistan) -- A NATO airstrike and twin suicide bombing in Afghanistan Wednesday have reportedly left more than 40 dead and 50 wounded.
Afghan officials say 21 civilians, including women and children, were killed when coalition forces bombed a house in the Baraki Barak district of Logar province. A wedding party was being held there at the time.
The International Security Assistance Force has disputed those numbers, saying the attack targeted and killed only militants, and that two civilians -- both women -- suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at a NATO base.
Meanwhile in Kandahar, the Taliban have claimed responsibility for a twin suicide bombing that killed 22 civilians and sent 50 more to the hospital. It happened while NATO supply trucks were lined up, waiting to enter the nearby air base.
