US-led coalition and Afghan troops launched airstrikes against a compound suspected of housing al-Qaida militants in eastern Afghanistan, killing seven children and several militants, a coalition statement said Monday. Coalition and Afghan troops launched the attack Sunday on a compound that also contained a mosque and a madrassa, or Islamic school, in the Zarghun Shah District of Paktika Province, the statement said. "Coalition forces confirmed the presence of nefarious activity occurring at the site before getting approval to conduct an air strike on the location," the statement said. Early reports said seven children at the madrassa were killed in the strike and that "several militants" also were killed, the coalition statement said.
