No troops disciplined in US strike killing Afghan civilians

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. defense officials say no U.S. troops involved in the August drone strike that killed innocent Kabul civilians and children will face disciplinary action. The Pentagon said that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has approved recommendations from the generals who lead U.S. Central Command and Special Operations Command, based on the findings of an independent Pentagon review released last month. The Aug. 29 drone strike on a white Toyota Corolla sedan killed Zemerai Ahmadi and nine family members, including seven children. Ahmadi was an employee of an American humanitarian organization. The military says the strike was a tragic mistake, not caused by misconduct or negligence.
