“Eight people, a man, his wife and six of their children, are dead. It was an air strike conducted by Nato. This man had no connection to the Taliban or any other terrorist group,” local government spokesman Rohullah Samoon told AFP.
A senior security official in Kabul confirmed the incident, while Nato’s military said it was investigating the claim.
Earlier, the alliance said four of its soldiers had died in separate bomb attacks in Afghanistan on Saturday.
Nato did not give details of the deaths of its four service members on Saturday, nor reveal the nationalities of the victims.
