The army check point at Logar province, Afghanistan was airstriken by the US Air Force.

The checkpoint in Baraki Barak district was attacked by two American military helicopters. 10 Afghan soldiers are reported dead, 4 seriously wounded.

"At 6 am (0130 GMT) today, two US helicopters attacked a checkpoint in Baraki Barak," district governor Mohammad Rahim Amin claimed.

"The checkpoint caught fire... and 10 Afghan army soldiers were killed."

Amin said the targeted outpost was "not a suspicious area".

"The Afghan flag was waving at the checkpoint in Baraki Barak when the Americans launched their attack," he said.
