A NATO airstrike targeted a police station in a remote district of Afghanistan's Nuristan province early Monday morning, killing at least four police officers and wounding eight others, officials said.
The body of Dr. Karen Woo, one of 10 volunteer medical aid workers fatally shot August 5 in the remote mountains of northeast Afghanistan, was repatriated Monday from Kabul, the British Foreign Office said.
The International Assistance Mission on Monday identified the 10 aid workers killed by gunmen in Badakhshan, Afghanistan, last week. The 10 "were our friends and colleagues from the Nuristan medical eye camp team," the organization said in a statement.
An investigation into an attack that killed eight U.S. troops in eastern Afghanistan last year said the combat outpost was an "attractive target" because protection improvements hadn't been made and intelligence assets had been diverted.
