[ToloNews] At least four Afghan National Army personnel were killed by "friendly fire" in the eastern province of Pashtun-infested Logar on Monday night, provincial police claim.

According to Pashtun-infested Logar police front man Shahpoor Ahmadzai, a US Arclight airstrike

attack and Afghan forces called for air support.

The outpost is located in the Bazar-e-Zekher area on the outskirts of Pul-e-Alam city, the center of Pashtun-infested Logar, Ahmadzai said.

Six other ANA soldiers were maimed in the airstrike, police said.

A front man for US Forces in Afghanistan responded: "We are aware of reports a US airstrike conducted last night in support of Afghan forces may have resulted in Afghan National Army casualties. US and Afghan forces are working closely together to develop a shared understanding of this event. A joint investigation is ongoing."

Also in Pashtun-infested Logar, provincial police said that a convoy of foreign forces was targeted by a boom-mobile explosion near a military camp Tuesday morning.

A US Forces spokesperson said: "A vehicle-borne IED targeted a U.S. convoy this morning in Pashtun-infested Logar province. Only the VBIED driver was killed. No U.S. or Coalition service members were maimed or killed in the attack. We are investigating the incident."
