Nine Afghan soldiers have been killed by mistake in a Nato-led air strike in southeast Afghanistan.
The US-led coalition said its troops "may have mistakenly killed and injured" Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers after coming under attack while returning from an operation.
"As a coalition convoy was returning from a previous operation, they were involved in multiple engagements. As a result of the engagements, ANA soldiers were killed and injured," the military said in a statement.
"They made us do it!"
