    A NATO airstrike has killed 12 civilians in eastern Afghanistan.

    11 of the victims were children.

    The attack happened overnight in Kunar province, near the Pakistan border after US and Afghan forces launched an operation targeting a senior Taliban leader.

    A government official said seven Taliban suspects were also killed.
