At least 30 civilians died in May US strikes in Afghanistan: U.N. probe
At least 30 civilians were killed when the U.S. bombed several alleged drug making facilities in western Afghanistan in May, a U.N. agency said in a report Wednesday, though the U.S. military immediately disputed the findings.

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said in a statement that it had "verified 39 civilian casualties (30 deaths, five injured and four undetermined), including 14 children and one woman, due to the 5 May air strikes".
