US drone kills 7 in eastern Afghanistan

A US drone strike has claimed at least seven lives in eastern Afghanistan.

Local police say the United States conducted the airstrike in Nangarhar province on Monday. They say the victims are all Taliban militants. Over the past few days, more than 20 people have been killed in similar attacks in the same province. Washington says its unmanned aerial vehicles target militants. But many of the victims have turned out to be civilians including women and children. The United Nations has condemned US drone attacks as targeted killings.
