The Red Cross says the compound was clearly marked
An International Red Cross warehouse was hit on Tuesday by a US bomb which destroyed wheat and other humanitarian supplies. One Afghan member of staff was seriously injured in the attack on a compound in northern Kabul, the ICRC told BBC News Online.
The blunder follows the killing of four Afghan guards from a UN mine clearance agency in Kabul nearly two weeks ago when another bomb went astray as well as several villagers when two bombs meant for Kabul airport went astray.
The Pentagon has yet to comment, but said earlier that dozens of US navy and air force planes hit other targets throughout Tuesday, including the capital, Kabul.
