Afghanistan: US drone strike in Kabul kills 10 civilians, including children
Ten civilians - including several children - were killed in a US drone strike targeting a vehicle in a residential area of Kabul on Sunday, according to The Washington Post, The New York Times, and The Los Angeles Times.

The deceased were from a single extended family and were leaving their car when the strike hit a separate vehicle nearby, The Post said.

The youngest victim was a 2-year-old girl, according to a brother of one of deceased family members, according to CNN.

Quote:The brother told CNN that the individuals killed were "an ordinary family," adding: "We are not ISIS or Daesh and this was a family home - where my brothers lived with their families."

A neighbor described the harrowing scene in an interview with CNN.

Quote:"All the neighbors tried to help and brought water to put out the fire and I saw that there were five or six people dead," they said to the network. 

"The father of the family and another young boy and there were two children. They were dead. They were in pieces. There were [also] two wounded."

Quote:Another neighbor told CNN that there could possibly have been up to 20 people who perished in the strike, relaying that "not much is left of their house and nothing can be recognized."

The US Central Command on Sunday said that the drone strike took out an Islamic State car bomb that posed an "imminent" danger to the Kabul airport.
