Airstrikes and clashes north of Kabul have killed 11 people, some of whom might be civilians, Afghan officials said Sunday. More than 10 people were killed Saturday in the clash near Kapisa, about 60 kilometers (40 miles) north of Kabul, the Defense Ministry said in a statement. The ministry did not say if those killed were militants or civilians. The provincial deputy governor Rahimullah Safi, said that 11 people were killed and they were all civilians. Three others were wounded after an airstrike in the village of Juibar in the restless Tagab valley of Kapisa province, Safi said. But the provincial police chief, Matiullah Safi, says it was not yet clear if the dead were militants or civilians.
