KABUL (Reuters) - An Afghan official said a NATO air strike killed seven civilians in the country's east, including a nine-year-old child, but the international coalition said on Monday the strike killed eight militants who had fired on its forces.

Civilian casualties from air strikes remain a raw issue in the Afghan war, although U.N. statistics show the number killed has sharply dropped in recent years.
