More than 20 insurgents including Arab, Chechen and Pakistani fighters have been killed by NATO and Afghan forces who are ramping up operations in the east against a Taliban faction linked to al-Qaida, the international coalition said Saturday.
"The coalition last night ran an operation in that village and unfortunately they were acting on an incorrect report that there was a meeting of Haqqani network commanders going on," said Mubarez Zadran, a spokesman for the provincial government. "The operation left six civilians dead."
He said the insurgents appeared to have been aiming at a coalition base but missed.
