Afghan Air Strike

An Afghan forces air strike on a gathering of Taliban representatives in the northern province of Kunduz on Monday (April 2) caused numerous casualties, including civilians, officials said.

Abdul Hameed Hameedi, a local police official, said the strike in Dasht-i Archi district outside Kunduz city hit a gathering of Taliban fighters preparing an operation, killing 15 and wounding 10. He said there also appeared to be civilian casualties but he had no details.

Local people said the strike had hit a mosque and that a number of civilians had been killed and wounded. Dasht-i Archi has been largely under the control of Taliban fighters and many details about the strike were unclear.

A statement from the Taliban said the strike killed 150 religious scholars and civilians and denied that any of its forces were present.
