The U.S. military claims that more than 40 Taliban were killed during the July 10 operation in the capital of Oruzgan Province, Tirin Kot. Residents, though, say at least four civilians, including children, were killed.
The investigation into the incident was launched on the orders of Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
