Kabul, Afghanistan - An airstrike on a suspected insurgent camp in central Afghanistan killed three civilians and four militants, the US military said Saturday.
All seven died when warplanes attacked the camp in Uruzgan province on Friday, a military statement said.
"The attack killed one Afghan woman, one Afghan man and a child," the statement said. Two more children were wounded and taken to the US base in the southern city of Kandahar for treatment, it said.
The military didn't say whether US planes carried out the attack or give details of the victims. A spokeswoman had no further details.
The military said Friday's strike occurred during a series of attacks over two days against insurgents in Uruzgan, a mountainous province that US and Afghan authorities have failed to pacify despite intense military operations.
