20 Die in Coalition Missile Strike in Afghanistan

At least 20 people have been killed in a missile strike by ‘coalition’ forces in Afghanistan. Local people say that the group was a wedding party, and most of the dead are said to be women and children. However the US has said that those killed were militants involved in previous mortar attacks on a NATO base. [Yeah, the bride was a busy little bee in June. You know, planning her wedding, planning mortar attacks….]
