Per the BBC:
Emal Ahmadi and relatives and friends have been combing through wreckage in Kabul, searching for the remains of 10 family members they say were killed in a US drone strike on Sunday.
The family told the BBC that six children were among the dead, including Emal’s two-year-old daughter Sumaya.
The US military says it is investigating reports of civilian casualties, but that the drone strike disrupted an imminent threat to Kabul airport from IS-K (Islamic State Khorasan Province), the Afghan branch of the Islamic State group.
