ISAF, a military body on which Irish soldiers serve in Afghanistan, has apologised for the wrongful killing by helicopter fire of two Afghans. The killings happened on Thursday.
ISAF spokesman Gunther Katz said they were killed because they were identified, wrongly, as insurgents.
The two dead were boys, both under 7 years of age. They were minding cows.
