A foreign military air strike in southern Afghanistan killed 30 civilians, including women and children, a district mayor said on Saturday, citing initial investigations.

"Our initial investigations show that 30 civilians, including women, children and men, have been killed," said Dur Alisha, the mayor of Girishk district in the southern province of Helmand.

"I cannot say anything about Taliban casualties. The number of civilians killed is 30, plus or minus one," the mayor told AFP by telephone.
