KABUL (Reuters) - Seven Afghan children have been killed in a U.S.-led coalition air strike, the coalition said on Monday, the latest civilian deaths by foreign troops amid rising anger in Afghanistan.

The late Sunday strike, in southeastern Paktika province close to the border with Pakistan, also killed several militants, the coalition said in a statement.
