14 killed in US drone strike in eastern Afghanistan

A US drone air raid has killed at least 14 people in eastern Afghanistan.
The attack was carried out in Nangarhar province. Local police say the unmanned aerial vehicle targeted a militant hideout and victims were all Taliban members. The attack also left over a dozen people wounded. Washington conducts drone strikes in several Muslim countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen, under the pretext of targeting militants. However, a large number of the victims have turned out to be civilians. The United Nations has condemned US drone attacks as targeted killings.
