Britain's Ministry of Defense on Wednesday confirmed that a box of leaflets dropped from a British plane killed a girl in Afghanistan. The ministry said the box failed to break apart before striking the ground in Helmand province on June 23, and that the girl was fatally injured when the box hit her. The girl's death is a matter of "deep regret," the ministry said, adding that it was investigating the incident.
