Kabul families say children killed in US drone attack

A US drone attack in Kabul killed 10 civilians - aged between two and 40 years.
The United States said the attack on Sunday targeted Islamic State in Khorasan Province, ISKP (ISIS-K) suicide bombers intending to attack Kabul airport.
Meanwhile, several rockets have been fired at Kabul’s international airport a day before the deadline for the US troops to pull out of Afghanistan ends.
The White House, which confirmed the attack, said that evacuation operations at the airport were not interrupted, adding that President Joe Biden was briefed about the latest rocket attack on Monday morning aimed at the Hamid Karzai International Airport.
A US official told the Reuters news agency that some of the rockets were intercepted by a missile defence system.
