MOSCOW,  - Russia was not behind an air strike in northern Afghanistan and its military aircraft have not been conducting any operations near Afghanistan's border with Tajikistan, the RIA news agency cited the Russian Defense Ministry as saying on Monday.

Two Afghan government officials said earlier on Monday that a Tajik or Russian plane had bombed a northeastern Afghan border district during a clash between gunmen and Tajik border guards.
