Twelve children and two women have been killed in a Nato airstrike in Afghanistan, according to local officials.

The tragedy happened in Nawzad district in southwest Helmand province late on Saturday.

Dawood Ahmadi, a spokesman for the provincial government, said Nato was targeting insurgents but instead struck two homes, killing two women, five girls and seven boys.

Some of the children were under two years old. A further six people were reportedly injured in the bombardment.

Distraught father Noor Agha said: “My house was bombarded in the middle of the night and my children were killed. The Taliban were far away from my home, why was my house bombed?”
