Eight Afghan soldiers were killed and five others wounded after U.S. forces bombed an Afghan army outpost in Logar province on Monday morning, provincial officials said.

Dawoud Ahmadi, provincial police chief says two US air force choppers bombed an Afghan National Army outpost in Cheltan area of Baraki Barak district early this morning around 6:00 am.

He added, there were 14 soldiers in the security post, but there is no exact information about causalities.
