    At least 33 people, among them women and children, were killed and 12 injured on Sunday during NATO airstrike in southern Afghanistan said the Afghan government. The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said its forces used airborne weapons to target a group of Taliban believed to be en route to attack a joint Afghan-ISAF unit, resulting in a number of individuals killed and wounded.

    Women and Children Killed

    Earlier, an Interior Ministry spokesman said: "According to initial reports 21 civilians were killed, among them women and children, and another 14 people injured".

    After the joint ground force arrived at the scene and found women and children, they transported the wounded to medical treatment facilities,' ISAF said in a statement. A joint investigation was underway, it said.
