ISAF not involved in Kabul incident September 1

KABUL, Afghanistan - After an extensive investigation, ISAF reports that neither it nor the U.S.-led coalition’s forces were conducting any offensive operations in Kabul the evening of August 31.

A protest September 1 in Kabul followed claims that international forces attacked a family during the evening killing a man and two children.

ISAF offers its condolences to the families and the community affected by these deaths.

After thoroughly checking with all ISAF and U.S.-led coalition forces, none were involved in such an operation.
