NATO carried out strike where Afghan blast reported
KABUL (Reuters) - NATO-led forces said on Friday they had carried out an air strike in a northern Afghan province where officials said a big fuel-tanker blast may have killed scores of people.
Asked about reports the blast may have been caused by NATO forces firing on fuel tankers, Captain Jon Stock, press officer for U.S. and NATO-led troops in Afghanistan, said: "I can confirm that there was an air strike last night or early this morning."
He confirmed that the strike took place in Kunduz province where the blast was reported, but gave no further details.
