WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. drone strike in Kabul last month killed as many 10 civilians, including seven children, a senior U.S. general said on Friday.

U.S. Central Command’s head, General Frank McKenzie, said to reporters that it was a mistake.

According to him, it was unlikely the car that crashed into Kabul or that any of those killed were Islamic State militants.
