General: Attack may have killed Afghan civilians

KABUL (AP) - The No. 2 commanding general in Afghanistan says a NATO-led attack Tuesday in eastern Afghanistan "possibly" resulted in civilian deaths.

Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez told reporters Wednesday that the operation, which involved coalition and Afghan troops, was a "confusing operation."

"We're continuing to investigate," he said.

The Afghan government said NATO forces killed six civilians during the pre-dawn operation Tuesday.
