‘Tragic mistake’: Pentagon apologises for Kabul drone strike that killed 10 civilians, including up to 7 children

The Pentagon has admitted a drone strike in Kabul that killed 10 civilians, including up to 7 children, was a “tragic mistake”.

General Kenneth Franklin McKenzie Jr, head of US central command, said it is “unlikely” the vehicle targeted on 29 August – or those who died – were associated with ISIS-K or were a direct threat to US forces.
