Taliban demand air strike inquiry
The Taliban have called for a UN and human rights investigation into an air strike in Afghanistan on Friday that killed dozens of people.
The independent Afghanistan Rights Monitor group says up to 70 civilians died in the Kunduz province raid. The Nato air strike targeted fuel tankers hijacked by the insurgents.
