An air raid which killed 15 civilians on Friday, is being investigated by the government in Afghanistan.

The US army has insisted only Taliban fighters were killed in the attack in the north-eastern province of Nuristan.

The US Military has also denied any responsibility in the killing of at least eight women and children on Sunday.

A local doctor in the White Mountains on the Pakistan border said the people were killed in an international troop raid.

Emotions are running high in Afghanistan with local residents claiming international troops are not careful enough about selecting their targets.

Almost 700 civilians have been killed in the last six months in raids and attacks, 250 of them by international or Afghan troops.
