The New York Times reports an American airstrike killed five Afghan National Army soldiers and wounded eight more Thursday morning, according to Afghan and American officials. The attack took place at 3:20 a.m. in the Charkh District of Logar Province, in eastern Afghanistan. Local officials attributed it to a drone strike, though a spokesman for the American military later said that crewed aircraft had been involved. “We believe the strike was the result of poor coordination between the people on the ground and the operators of the drone,” said Din Mohammad Darwish, a spokesman for the governor of Logar. American officials said they would investigate the deaths, which happened while aircraft were supporting a ground mission led by Afghan forces.
