KABUL (Reuters) - Five Afghan soldiers were killed in an air strike by the NATO-led force in Afghanistan on Thursday in eastern Logar province, a government official said.

"The reason for the air strike is not clear and an investigation is ongoing," said the provincial governor's spokesman Din Mohammad Darwish.

The NATO-led force in Afghanistan said it was aware of reports but could not immediately provide any details or comment on the incident.
