US offers payments to family of Afghans killed in drone attack

AMN/ WEB DESK

The Pentagon has offered unspecified condolence payments to the family of 10 civilians, who were killed in a botched US drone attack in Afghanistan in August this year before American troops withdrew from the country. The US Defence Department said, it made a commitment that included offering ex-gratia condolence payments, in addition to working with the US State Department in support of the family members who were interested in relocation to the United States.

Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby yesterday said that US Under Secretary of Defence for Policy Colin Kahl held a virtual meeting on Thursday with the Founder and President of Nutrition & Education International Steven Kwon. An employee of the aid organization Zemari Ahmadi was killed in the August 29 drone attack. Mr Kirby said that Ahmadi and others who were killed in the strike were innocent victims who bore no blame and were not affiliated with Islamic State-Khorasan or threats to US forces. The drone strike in Kabul killed as many as 10 civilians, including seven children.
